The Centre is a registered Charity and provides all its service free of charge to local Carers. Many of our services have been commissioned by our Statutory partners including St Helens Council and Halton and St Helens NHS.

However, as an independent Charity we still have to raise funds to ensure we can continue to offer our services. If you would like to make a donation to the Centre you can do so via our address or you can contact our Chief Executive on 01744 675 615.

Alternatively you can support us by joining our lottery and also have a chance of winning!


This is your opportunity to help us in raising much needed funds so St Helens Young Carers can have their childhoods back. We work intensively with over 500 6-18 year olds in St Helens who provide Care for one or both parents. By helping us support these young Carers you also have the chance of winning in our weekly lottery. The money raised helps us run regular weekly respite sessions for the young carers and also residential holidays as many of the people we work with never get a break from their caring role, let alone the opportunity to have a short break or holiday.

Each week our lottery gives you the chance to win up to £1,176* with many £10 prizes. When you join, we will write to you and confirm your number and upon receipt of payment your number will be entered into our weekly draw held every Monday at 11.00am (except on public holidays when it is held on the first working day following the holiday). The first number drawn wins the top weekly prize. Winners are notified by post and a printed winners list which is displayed at the Carers Centre.

Anyone can join the lottery, providing you are over 16 years of age. You may enter more than once per week at a cost of £1 per entry.

To enter, please complete an Entry Form - available by clicking here or from our reception - and return with either a cheque or complete the standing order. If you pay by standing order, your entry will not begin until the first day after payment has been received.

* The amount of our top prize depends upon the number of entries, for example if there are 4500 entries; the top weekly prize is £1,175 with another 130 prizes of £10. If there are 2000 entries, then the top weekly prize is £550 with another 55 prizes of £10.

Thank you and Good Luck!
