Pears Explore More! Support Fund

NEW APPLICATIONS HAVE NOW CLOSED.

ANY APPLICATION FORMS WHICH YOUNG CARERS HAVE RECEIVED VIA KIRSTY OR ALISON IN THE LAST COUPLE OF WEEKS WILL STILL BE CONSIDERED. HOWEVER THESE FORMS NEED TO BE SUBMITTED BEFORE 4:30PM ON FRIDAY 30TH SEPTEMBER.

Pears Explore More! Support Fund is a pilot funding programme established by Carers Trust, thanks to the Pears Foundation, to help network partners (Trafford Carers Centre) with providing financial support to young carers aged 5-17.

Young Carers can apply for up to £150 in funding and it will enable them to take part in activities that would otherwise be inaccessible, due to the caring role and/or the family’s financial situation. For example:

  • Costs associated with sports and/or recreational activities (e.g. entrance fees, transport costs etc.)
  • purchase of activity related equipment (e.g. sports kits and clothing).
  • Tuition which build on interest and/or talent (e.g. music tuition).
  • And many more!

To be eligible to apply for the fund you must complete the application form below and agree for this information (anonymised) to be shared with Carers Trust as part of the evaluation process. Alternatively you can download the form here, which you can then return to Alison Jeapes or Kirsty Round at Trafford Carers Centre, 1st Floor, 19B School Road, Sale, M33 7XX
