What do we need to do?

Raise awareness of Youth at Heart, fundraise, and have fun! 

You can raise funds any way you wish, if you are a school, club, or small organisation you could have a dress down day or wear red and ask for a small donation from those taking part, it could be £1, it could be £5, whatever the amount it makes a difference.

Other ideas for fundraising are endless from a sponsored walk, silence or baking and selling cakes. Pop over to our Get Involved Page for more ideas.

Download one of our sponsorship forms and ask all your family and friends to sponsor you or attend the event you are organising.

You can set up a Just Giving Fundraising page, set your challenge or fundraising goal and ensure donations can be made easily.

If you work, consider asking your employer about match funding? It’s a great way to increase your fundraising and involving your employer as well.  

The Youth at Heart team are on hand to help you raise awareness of our charity.

"The Youth at Heart Youth Workers give great support for young patients and their families from a non-clinical perspective – can be less intimidating for the patient. Help us staff to find ways to better support these patients / finding strategies to better approach them and respond to their needs."

"Better understanding of youth culture and skills which enable sharing in a less formal and threatening interaction. The Youth Workers teach us medics/nurses what is cool!"
