At least 2 children in every classroom in Oxfordshire are young carers.
COVID-19: The current need to stay at home is affecting the well being of young carers … no socialising, no respite, no school at home 24/7 with the person they care for. Be Free Young Carers is continuing to support young carers and families during this time offering telephone befriending, home based activities through our social media and help in distributing food to those who for health reasons cannot go out.
You can help these young people have a chance to be children, relax, make friends and have fun away from the pressures of their caring roles, away from the anxiety and stress so many feel.
We are currently the only organisation in Oxfordshire that offers this support.
We give young carers time to make friends and have fun
