Young Carers Activity Fund

The Young Carers Activity Fund is designed to give young carers aged under 18* a break from their caring role and to give them a choice about how they take this break.

The fund is currently administered by Sheffield Young Carers (SYC) on behalf of Sheffield City Council.

Applications MUST be completed by a professional who is working with the young carer, with the consent and involvement of the young carer and their parent/guardian. 

The closing dates for 2017-18 applications are 5pm on:

  • Friday 7th July 2017
  • Friday 13th October 2017
  • Friday 9th February 2018

PLEASE NOTE: To avoid disappointment, please be aware that this fund is VERY limited and we can only allocate a small number of grants per year. Please consider this when deciding whether to make an application. If you are not successful this time however, you can apply again in the future. 

For full application criteria and guidance, please download our application form.

*Carers aged over 18 can apply for a ‘Time for Me’ Break from Sheffield Carers Centre.
