How this cause brings people in the community together

Having a break increases young carers’ resilience, so they can continue caring for sick and vulnerable family members in a robust and safe way. Joining in with activities helps their wellbeing and creates lasting friendships and peer support. Activities provide a fun and entertaining break, as well as life skills and training. Activities will decrease anxiety, loneliness and isolation.
