Every year Edinburgh Young Carers needs to raise over £300,000 to support its work with young carers. We rely on grants, donations and public support to fund our services and new developments.

If you would like to support our work there are a number of ways you can do this – organising fundraising events, saving loose change in a money box, making a regular donation by standing order or through Payroll Giving, or a one-off donation or bequest. If you would like to make a donation, or find out more, please contact us by telephoning 0131 475 2322 or emailing

If you prefer, click on the Virgin Money Giving button and donate online using your credit/debit card and please email us to let us know if you would like an acknowledgement. Gift Aid can be automatically added to your online donation if you wish. Any donation, large or small, will help.
