Volunteering is fun and rewarding – this is what our volunteers with the Young Carers' Project said:

 

"Volunteering for Kingston Young Carers is great.  It means you get the fun side of the kids - like sleeping in the science museum, with not a lot of sleep!" Claire- Young Carers Volunteer

 

"Volunteering with Kingston Young Carers has been an amazing opportunity. I have got to know some inspirational young people and joined in with some brilliant activities and day-trips. It's great to know that the young people have had fun whilst at the project, as well as having just as much fun yourself. I always leave from volunteering in such a good mood! It has also improved my confidence and team-working skills - I am now at university studying medicine, and I think I have everyone at Kingston Young Carers' to thank for helping me get here" Saskia – Young Carers Volunteer

 

"Working with young carers is rewarding as it allows us to help them develop their characters and deal with everyday tasks" Amyn – Young Carers Volunteer

 

"With Kingston Carers YCP, I found that I was working with a well organised charity project, that benefited those children that needed a break from caring. The activities were fun, well organised and which I fully enjoyed helping out the kids. The charity made me feel very welcome and gave me a purpose in my volunteering role and which used my skills to excellent use within the projects structure. In the end I received invaluable experience on the project". Chris Stables – Young Carers Volunteer
