There are so many easy and fun ways to get children involved in raising money for Dementia Carers Count. Whether baking, biking or boogying, kids love taking part and fundraising is a great way to teach them about caring for those in the community. 

We’ve got a full list of ways to raise money in our A-Z, but some of our favourite fundraising ideas for kids are:

  • Dress up Day
  • Read-a-thon
  • Sponsored Walk – Run – Cycle – Scoot – Skate
  • Seasonal fundraisers – children love running their own stalls, whether its their own crafts, bakes or games with donated toys or chocolate.

Why not get your kids school or group together – after all everything is better when we get together. Have family friendly quiz night (with some special kids focused games), a carol concert or performance, have a coffee morning, or get the children to work as a team to reach achieve a distance challenge.

Nearly one in three young people know someone living with dementia, often a grandparent but increasingly a parent, and therefore they see impact that this has on the primary carers as well as those family and friends around them. That’s why we think it’s important for every young person to understand what it’s like to live with the condition.
