York Carers Centre became an independent registered charity in 2009, after operating under the Yorkshire Primary Care Trust.
A network member of the national Carers Trust, we work in partnership with carers, statutory and voluntary organisations to ensure carers, throughout York, have access to confidential information, advice and support. We work with carers to influence positive change in service delivery with local government, employers and health providers.
York Carers Centre supports carers through three key areas:
- Young Adults (18 – 25)
- Young Carers (5 – 18)
Our funding comes from a variety of sources but our principal funders are The City of York Council and The Vale of York Clinical Commissioning Group. We rely on grants from charitable trusts and on donations and fundraising to enable us to deliver specific projects.
