Weekly Groups

At young carers there are many different types of groups to suit a variety of age ranges.

On a Saturday we have our youngest group for 5 – 11 year olds. They do things like cookery, arts and crafts, play on the computers and do lots of team games and activities.


How to join the weekly groups...

If you would like more information about how to get involved with young carers please contact a young carers development worker and we can talk to you about how you can get involved. Usually the groups start in September and young carers sign up to take part for a year, however sometimes we can fit people in if places come up or you may need to go on a waiting list. Transport is also available for groups and activities if you need it so don't worry about how you will get there. We will look forward to hearing from you if you want to take part!

Holiday Activities


"We got to take part in all kinds of activities during the summer holidays. There was 2 residentials in Whitby, trips to Bamburgh Castle, Jedburgh Dene, Seahouses and many more. More than 150 young carers took part throughout the summer and all had a fab time!"
