Joanne was made redundant as a community fundraiser in 2013, she decided to take a leap of faith and set up her own business “My Life Skills” coaching business skills to new business start up’s.
After an interesting time of learning new life skills and growing, she realized she missed out on working alongside a motivated team and fundraising in the community. As that is what she does best, encouraging the community to work together for the common cause!
After a brief search for her ideal position MyTIME charity came along out of the blue just like a dream……
Joanne say’s “I immediately I saw a way that I could incorporate my love and passion for health and happiness, while making a difference to young carers lives”
MyTIME is a charity that cares for young carers aged 11-18, providing respite breaks; enabling time and adventure at their outdoor centre in Worth Matravers. Currently estimated figures show that there are 700,00.00 young carers in the UK. These are loving caring children, who are the main carers in their families, looking after a sick or otherwise incapacitated relative (and often siblings) as there is no one else to help them!

The charity is promoting MyTIME to Swap fundraising events. All you do is bring your unwanted clothes, bags, shoes and you swap - all donations going in the pot!
What could be easier and so much FUN
Most women only wear 20% of their wardrobe 80 % of young carers feel they are missing out on their childhood - we want to make sure they do not miss out anymore!
