Each year Skye & Lochalsh Young Carers needs to raise funds to provide help and support to young carers throughout the region. We rely on funding, donations and the support of our local community.

From making a donation to raising awareness in your school, workplace or online, there are lots of different ways to help us provide young carers with the support they need.
Whether you’re interested in supporting as an individual, or a group, or taking part in an event, there are lots of ways to support us. If you would like to make a donation, or find out more, please contact us by telephoning 01478 613617 or emailing on skye.lochalshcarers@gmail.com. Every action you take will help us to identify and support more young carers in Skye & Lochalsh – thank you.
