It’s a great achievement that the work of the volunteer centre has been recognised by the Hertfordshire business community through our nomination.”

Carers in Hertfordshire
Carers in Hertfordshire is a charity that supports carers. As part of their work they provide support to young carers.
These young people are aged eight to 18 and look after an ill or disabled relative who could not manage without their help. To give these young carers a break from their caring role they run events across the county and need volunteers to help with this. Ideally, you will be a driver with your own vehicle but will be matched with events that are as close as possible to where you live. This role involves helping to set up the venue, encouraging the young carers to get the most out of the day, assisting with refreshments and also with administration at the end of the event. Events generally take place during school holidays. Volunteers should be aged 18 or over for this role.
