Support Carewise

Would you like to make a difference to a Young Carer?

Many Young Carers are unable to do the usual things a young person can do – go out with friends, have friends home, spend time at leisure centres, go on holiday, have weekend trips etc. Due to their caring role, they may find just keeping up with their education difficult; they may feel stressed and tired, confused or angry at their loss of childhood; they may be bullied at school and feel isolated and that they have nobody to talk to.

Your donations enhance our core work enabling us to provide support to young carers in North Devon. They can enable a Young Carer to regain their childhood – time for fun and friends, learning, independence and a future to be realised.

  • £5 will help provide healthy refreshments for Young carers to eat at drop in.
  • £10 would provide free use of the pool table for 5 games for 10 weeks, or purchase a DVD or video game for Young carers to play together.
  • £70 would provide minibus transport for Young carers to go on a local trip.
  • £100 provides 30 Young carers with a hot meal whilst they are on a day trip.
  • £500 would cover the cost of a trip (not including staff salaries) for 30 Young carers to attend a theme park, activity centre etc.
  • £1,000 would provide Young carers in North Devon with 25 drop ins.

Donations can also be used to fund volunteer mentors who take individuals out regularly and support them throughout the year on a one to one basis.

How to Donate –

Donations for the benefit of young carers in Northern Devon can be made by cheque made payable to TTVS, and sent to 14 Bridgeland Street, Bideford, Devon, EX39 2QE.

Gift Aid

When you give money to Carewise (part of the charity, ‘TTVS’) through Gift Aid, this is money you have already paid tax on, and we can reclaim basic rate tax from HM Revenue & Customs on the amount before basic rate tax was deducted. This adds approximately an additional 20% to the donation you pay.

If a donor is a higher rate tax payer, they too can benefit from the tax relief as they can claim back the difference between the higher rate of tax at 40 per cent and the basic rate of tax at 20 per cent on the total value of their gross donation.
