Postcode Society Trust awards AYC a vital grant

Andover Young Carers receive a grant thanks to players of People’s Postcode Lottery.


We are thrilled to announce that we have been awarded a vital grant from Postcode Society Trust, thanks to funds raised by players of People’s Postcode Lottery, towards providing vital support for the young carers of Andover and the surrounding area.

Amanda Kelly, Charity Executive at AYC said “We are absolutely delighted to receive this award from the Postcode Society Trust. As a small charity we rely on grants and donations to keep providing the wide range of support we do for young carers. This funding will enable us to continue with our after-school clubs where young carers can come together, meet others in a similar situation, get a break and have some fun.”

Laura Chow, Head of Charities at People’s Postcode Lottery, said: “I’m so pleased that funding raised by our players is going to support young carers in Andover and the surrounding areas.

Caring for someone you love is hard work and can be lonely, so services like Andover Young Carers are so important. They not only give young people a break from their responsibilities but also allow them to share how they’re feeling with people who understand what they’re going through.”
