Mental wellbeing

We'd like to teach young carers, especially boys, how to eat healthily and cook nutritious food with their families. Eating well and getting a break from caring promotes positive mental wellbeing.

About this cause

We want to teach young carers how to cook, making healthy meals to share with their families. Cookery sessions are fun, give young carers a break, and build skills they can use throughout their lives. We will provide a programme of cookery sessions to 120 young carers throughout the year.

How this cause brings people in the community together

Taking time away from their caring role gives young carers the opportunity to have some fun and be a child for a change. Outcomes will be that young carers: learn new cookery skills and food hygiene; will have a break from their caring role; will make friends and feel less isolated; and will report increased confidence.
