About Us

Mytime is deliciously simple.

Mytime connects carers who could benefit from a break from their demanding roles with businesses and organisations who kindly donate complimentary leisure, cultural and educational activities to carers registered with Mytime

Who is a carer?

A carer is anyone who cares, unpaid, for a friend or family member, who due to illness, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction, cannot cope without their support.

How Mytime Started Mytime evolved from our work supporting and consulting with carers at Liverpool Carers Centre. They told us that they felt what would benefit them most would be a break.

Why do carers need a break?

According to the 2011 census, across the UK there are over 6.5 million carers. Carers UK estimate that this number has now risen to over 10.6million, that means that 1 in 5 adults in the UK are providing care.
Carers play a vital role in our society, their contribution is immeasurable, Carers hold families together, often making huge sacrifices to ensure that the care of their loved ones is paramount.
Research found that 8 out 10 carers report that their caring role has had a negative impact on their health, 78% feel more anxious and 55% had experienced depression.
Many carers are on duty around the clock and 1 in 5 carers have not had a break from their caring role in 5 years (Carers UK).

How Mytime works?

Mytime has a generous and committed group of organisations and businesses who kindly donate breaks including theatre tickets, afternoon tea, sports events, spa sessions, meals and overnight stays to carers registered with Mytime

Organisations and businesses kindly donate a break to Mytime.


The Mytime team then contact carers who are registered with mytime and informs them of the break opportunity.

Individual & Group Breaks

Businesses also donate breaks for larger groups of carers, such as an afternoon tea, history tours, activity breaks, to name just a few!
These are a great opportunity to meet others who may face similar challenges – we have had great feedback from carers who have experienced these breaks.
