Be Free Young Carers

You can join the following groups to get involved with Be Free Young Carers.

About us

Be Free Young Carers are looking for positive volunteers who can provide regular support to young carers through our Befriending Service. These young people {between 8-17 years old} care for family members who have a long term illness or disability.

Our young carers all currently live in Vale of the White Horse, South Oxfordshire and Oxford city. While not essential, having a valid driving licence and access to a vehicle would be useful in rural areas.

All Befrienders are required to provide two references, allow us to carry out an enhanced DBS check and complete our training and induction protocols.

There is no financial cost involved in becoming or being a Befriender. All reasonable expenses, such as travel and activity costs for both the Befriender and the young carer, are covered.

Be Free Young Carers also have other volunteering opportunities available throughout the year.
