Do you have a few spare hours to help us to send joy to young carers?

CaringKids is a registered charity that recognises the role of young carers and works to reduce their feelings of loneliness and social isolation, by sending them Toy Boxes, we like to call Joy Boxes, packed with toys, games, stationery and books.

Our Vision is a world where play time is recognised as an essential need for young carers, enabling them to grow into healthy, resilient and compassionate adults.
