Location

Situation

Young Carers can miss out on social activities due to their caring roles for family members who have mental health issues, drug/alcohol misuse, disabilities or long term conditions. They can often have lowered self-esteem, be lacking in confidence and be bullied.

Solution

The Festival will offer the Young Carers a break from caring, a chance to meet new people, build their social networks and make friends. The outdoor activities will increase their physical and emotional well-being, building their resilience.
