Youth Volunteers

We have a number of Youth Volunteers who do amazing jobs from crafting gifts to sell on stalls to manning information stands and supporting younger group members.

Along with Evie; Willow and Ellie-May are two of our youngest youth volunteers who started attending Sunbeams as a young carers. Ellie-May began making Christmas decorations out of Hama beads and resin to sell at fundraising events. Her designs have grown with her confidence, and she is now volunteering on our outreach project as a mentor.

Like Ellie-May Willow makes various craft items to sell raising much needed funds and is the voice of our youth committee.

Evie an amazing young lady who loves to write and raise awareness of Sunbeams, Autism, the achievements and difficulties of those attending. Through her letters she has received responses from a number of famous entertainers and the Duchess of York, Evie wants to share her journey and we have set up a Facebook page managed by her mum called Sunbeams Play - Evie's Journey for her to share her thoughts, ideas and achievements.

You can follow her journey here or take a look at our news page covering Evie's young person of the year award.
