Young Carers Week 2011

Twister for all!Great sunshine, fun, water fights and new friendships formed at the annual ASNA young Carers week. Twelve young people attended this event held at PGL Swindon. Activities ranged from Quad biking, zip wire, canoeing, mountain biking, Aeroball, Archery and much much more. Four volunteer youth workers attended to support the event. PGL staff provided the onsite activities while the volunteers, provided pastoral & emotional supports and discussion workshops. 27 dec 10 144The young people found the week 'enjoyable', 'gets better every year', 'made new friends' ' learnt a lot about myself during my time here'.

Continue to pray for the many young carers in the UK. There are an estimated 175,000 young carers in the UK (Census 2001). ASNA Young Carers project - Bright Futures - aims to provide a place where young carers and siblings of disabled children can came away from their caring and have some time for themselves with other young carers. We have found this project provides young carers and siblings with emotional and spiritual support.
