Trips Out

These are great days out mainly during the school holidays which give you fun times, with a good group of friends and allow you to be kids for the day. The project has visited places such as Thorpe Park, Joss Bay and London Theatres.

Young carers

Do you:

Worry about how your relative is behaving or feeling and do you worry about leaving them alone?

Don't worry,

you are not alone, other families have problems like yours and its ok to ask for help to make life easier.

What you need and how you feel is just as im-portant as your caring role. It is great to be with other young people who know how you feel and understand you.

We can help you get your voice heard.

We can sign post you to other people that may that may be able to help you and your family.

We are delighted to announce that our Young Carer Jake Pearson has won the prestigious Diana Award. The Diana Award started in 1999 by the UK Government to act as a lasting legacy to Princess Diana’s belief in the power of young people to change the world. Winning this award means so much to Jake as a celebration of how far he has come. The award also raises awareness for all Young Carers out there who may need help and support.
