“We are delighted to be partnering with JSY to provide support for My Time 4 Young Carers. Our business of providing care in Jersey means that we fully understand the pressures that young carers can face and how important it is for them to be given time to relax, seek advice and receive support. As well as providing financial support for these great activities, we also hope to work with JSY to utilise LV Care’s expertise to provide additional information, support and training where appropriate.”

“The generosity and support from companies such as LV Care Group is invaluable to JSY and we are really pleased that My Time 4 Young carers is now going to be able to run a full programme of activities. Jersey’s young carers assume a level of responsibility which would normally be associated with an adult, dealing with family members who may be disabled, have a chronic illness or mental health problems. Having a time and a place to learn, relax, talk and be heard is essential to help give young carers greater confidence and, hopefully, supply the tools to be able deal with the stress that can often develop.”
