Summer holiday fun for young carers

This summer holidays has seen  a variety of  young carers activities-all possible due to the donations and fund raising that has taken place  in the last 9 months:

Burnham on Sea – 23 young people 7-15yrs  had  a very wet day out,  by the sea!

 

On the beach!

Weston – 9 young carers, aged 16+, travelled to  Weston and had a great day thanks in part to the weather, which was just right. The sun was shining and young people went round the shops, had chips on the sea front and then loved the afternoon in the arcade on the pier.  Paddling in the sea, walking on the sands and sharing  funny tales added to the fun. For some, it was their first time at Weston and they really seem to get a lot from the day.

Darren Farmer, YSS Worcestershire Young Carers  key worker added “Young people challenged their abilities and tried all the activities in some form or other. It was great to see the achievements of young carers trying things out and accomplishing new experiences in a supported and enriching environment. One achieved the “heights” by being able to get up 13 crates, which equalled the centres record –it’s great to hear that young carers given the opportunity can achieve at the highest level. ”

Up to great heights!

Up to great heights!
