Mina Sheffield Young CarersThe Mina team supporting Sheffield Young CarersSelecting a charity our business can support throughout the year is something our entire team contributes to. This year, we’ve chosen to work with Sheffield Young Carers (SYC) – a local charity who provide the only dedicated services for young carers in the city.

Their services support children and young people between the ages of 8 and 25 who are providing care for a sick or disabled member of their family. With more than 24 years of experience, SYC have built up a wide range of skills, tools, techniques, contacts and networks to enable them to provide the best possible support.

To kick off our activities to help raise funds for this incredible cause, some of the Mina team will be going out of their comfort zones by taking part in the Sheffield half marathon on Sunday 27th March. Any funds raised will be matched by Mina and will help SYC to provide young carers of all ages with one-to-one and group support sessions, holiday activities and short respite breaks.

Chris Dalrymple, Managing Director and Co-Founder, Mina commented:

“It’s really important to everyone at Mina that we support our local community so we’re really excited to be supporting SYC. They’re a brilliant charity that does amazing work locally and really makes a difference to the lives of young people. We’ll be running a number of fundraising events for SYC throughout the year, so please support us where you can!”

Jade Hearsum, Supporter Engagement Officer at Sheffield Young Carers said:

“We are so excited to be working with Mina this year! Having met the team, I can see how dedicated they are to raising money to support young carers in our city.  Every penny raised will make a huge difference to our work. Thank you!”
