We give THEM A BREAK!
There are 700,00 young carers in the UK.
MyTIME was formed in 2013 to give young carers across the Southern communities, respite adventure breaks in the Isle of Purbeck to balance their mental and physical wellbeing. We encourage them to get outdoors, be active, while making new friends.
We ask Chloe and Ellis (New Forest Young Carers) what is it like to be a carer?
"Just a quick note to say thanks very much for the residential over Easter – the kids had a fantastic time and it was a great opportunity for them to relax and make new friends in similar situations".
These young carers are looking after one or more disabled, mentally impaired or otherwise incapacitated parents in the home. They are registered as young carers from the age of 5 through to 18.
Their lives are invariably completely devoted to the complete care of another family member - to the detriment of their own educational and emotional development. They have no time for friendships or play.
So we help them to regain their childhoods by offering them character-building adventure breaks that help them to develop and meet fellow carers.
Thanks for visiting our site - please become our friend so we can keep you posted on how we help them.
