About this cause
We're a group who want to help young carers to get a break. Throughout the pandemic they've been caring for someone at home. We support young carers, from age 8, with assessments, one-to-one and family support, groups and activities.
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.
