Wishing you guys all the best. I work for Create, and a lot of our work is with young carers, so I know how vital what you do is. I really hope you can raise enough money at this crucial time. Mike

I have been inspired by Orla Phipps, the most amazing young person who is caring for her Grandmother in Lockdown. Her Tiktoks have opened the eyes of millions of people to the geniuses of love and kindness that Young Carers are.

These people are amazing, ❤️ they give so much support to the family and the individual's they are helping. I don’t know where I would be without them, they’ve helped my daughter to come to terms with things, and giving her the courage and support she needs in being brave enough to speak up about things, they’ve helped her realise her worth and her place in the world, they have picked up the broken pieces in her iLife so many times when I have been so worn down as a parent and not knowing what more I can do, to help her after exploring every avenue possible, They are a breath of fresh air, they are so strong and they have to deal with a lot on a day to day basis, they have never failed my daughter once when she needed them and I seriously can’t thank them enough❤️, Our lives would have been very different had they not been there to support us through the hard times and given us hope and guidance to carry on through the sadness, the fears the guilts and the pains that life can sometimes throw our ways ,please support bright futures in any way you can, even if it’s just £10, you don’t know the difference it can make to a family or young persons lives They are an amazing team and I will be very sad if they can not continue to support vulnerable young people and their families to help them overcome life’s tough challenges, THANK YOU BRIGHT FUTURES your all amazing people ❤️❤️❤️

Local decorated pebble

Bright Futures will decorate a Devon beach pebble for you and email you a photo of your pebble which will be left in the local area to promote the work that Bright Futures does. This will enable more young adult carers to come to us for support and help young people identify themselves as a young adult carer. Donations will all be listed on our Facebook page and photographs will also displayed in our TTVS window.

Allows us to buy train tickets for for young adult carers to have a day out to relax and have fun away from their caring responsibilities.

Training session

This will enable our transitions workers to run a bespoke training session for our young adults carers. Examples of training we have already done include skin care sessions, upcycling and a healthy eating day with lots of yummy recipes and fun exercises.
