We can offer volunteers the chance to try something different, gain new skills, have fun and make a difference to the lives of some inspiring children and young people.  Volunteers help us to support more young carers in East Lothian than we would be able to do otherwise.  We have a range of opportunities available including administrative volunteers, young carers activity helpers and fundraising volunteers.

Why raise money for East Lothian Young Carers?


If you choose to make a donation to East Lothian Young Carers or hold a fundraising event you will be helping us to provide young carers in East Lothian with emotional support and short breaks from their caring role.  We currently have a waiting list of young people requiring support.  Fundraising and donations are an important part of our income allowing us to help more young carers.

A club session with transport for 20 young carers    £380

Would you consider holding a coffee morning or fundraiser for us?  We can help with posters and publicity.  

Day trip for 20 young carers £500

​Maybe you enjoy a challenge and take part in triathlons, marathons, cycling, walking or tough mudder experiences.  Whatever challenge you take part in we would be very grateful if you would consider fundraising for us.

 We can provide you with one of our special tops to wear.
