Smart Friends

Join the friends of Smart and help young people like Jess achieve her goals in life.

Here’s her story..

We met Jess 7 years ago and have seen her grow into an aspirational determined young woman, who has plans to go to university.  Jess is a Young Carer, her father who lives with a disability is a wheelchair user and Jess has been caring for him since she was 9 years old. Jess is just one of the many Young Carers we support here in Dover.

Jess quotes
“This year has been completely unprecedented. Throughout lockdown I have lived with my dad and it has taken its toll on my mental health. The amazing strength of Dover SmART Project has given so many of us hope for a better tomorrow. Thanks to all who work and volunteer, we young carers do not feel secluded or abandoned but part of a community that is dedicated to helping us through the tough parts of life.”
