Our  young carers or Hair Bear Bunch as they like to be called are a group of young people between the ages of 8 and 18. Young carers are young people who look after family members who may be disabled, suffer from mental health problems, misuse drugs and alcohol or elderly or infirm.

The aim of our group is to help our young people gain relief from the pressures at home and gain independence skills which will aid our young people in their home life and as they develop into adults. Throughout the session the young people enjoy taking part in activities of their choice as well as meeting up with one another to socialise. This allows group members to grow in confidence and have the opportunity to experience new things.

Regular activities which the group may take part in are:

  • Pool
  • Music
  • Group Games
  • Cooking
  • Sport
  • Arts & Crafts
  • Fundraising activities

Our group also work to achieve their Duke of Edinburgh Awards, Arts Award & John Muir Awards.

Holiday schemes are available to our participants where they have a chance to go on trips and residentials. In recent years this has included a 10 day trip to Mimosa in France with PGL, co-steering and Alton Towers.

Some of our group members also volunteer as peer supports during other sessions. Thereby allowing them to grow in confidence and self-esteem as they challenge themselves with new experiences and opportunities.
