YOUNG CARER FAMILY BREAK PROJECT

To give a break to young carers who look after a parent or sibling with cancer. The youngsters are between 9 and 18 years and sacrifice their childhood for the sake of their families. They get the chance to go on a park break with their families to get away from their stressful duties for a while.

Situation

We currently have many more youngsters in need of a break than what we can afford to provide. The number grows each year due to the prevalence of the disease and the cuts to welfare spending.

Solution

We give these youngsters the opportunity to experience what their peers take for granted - a family holiday!
