What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


Being a child is an important stage of your life. This is the time of life where you get to grow, develop and explore. Being a teenager is about your firsts in: driving, drinking, kisses, relationships. However, sometimes children and teenagers are faced with other difficulties and challenges. These can be from as little as making sure people are comfortable and happy to fully looking after a parent, sibling, or grandparent. Daily duties for a young carer can be helping the person they care for wake-up, get washed, dressed and fed before they even get themselves ready for something like school. A shocking 80% of all young carers reported being bullied for their noble duties to someone they love. The young carers group in saffron walden provides a safe space for young carers to meet other young carers and relax without thinking about their duties at home. Someone that isn't a young carer has more opportunity to go on holiday and on trips with schools. Clubs like young carers provide these opportunities for them.
