Our Young Carers Project supports children and young people aged 5-17 by delivering a range of social and leisure opportunities. By offering these services Young Carers can come together, develop friendships and enjoy some respite in a relaxed non-judgemental atmosphere. One Young Carer said ‘I can really be myself at Young Carers.’
We also offer 1:1 mentoring support to the young people and family support to parents and carers.
Catholic Care Senior Young Carers Group enjoyed an amazing experience together on their residential trip to Carlton Lodge Activity Centre. On the first day, the group took part in canoeing, raft building, axe throwing and problem solving. The evening came to a close with stories of the day and laughter around the campfire! The fun continued on day 2 with high ropes and zip wire and archery!
The young people made new friendships, experienced new challenges and overcame fears. One young person said ‘this had been the best 2 days of my life!’
A huge thank you to our supporters who ran the Leeds 10k and made this trip possible for our young people.
Thank you to a fantastic group of young people and of course our amazing staff team that made it all happen!
