Barnardos at MyTIME

The Barnardos Indigo service in Essex supports young carers who look after an adult family member who has a serious illness or disability.  They also work with schools to reduce the risk of social exclusion and underachieving.  As part of the project they look to provide breaks and new experiences.  Working with MyTIME enabled them to bring 9 young carers to Dorset during the half-term break.

(2) (640x457) (3) (4) (640x459) P1000683 (640x479) P1000684 (640x480) (640x480) P1000690 (640x480) P1000701 (640x479) P1000702 (640x480) P1000706 (640x480)

They had a fantastic weekend - the weather was very kind and they even managed to have a dip in the sea at Swanage!  They also packed in some rifle shooting and archery, table tennis and football, marshmallows and hot chocolate, a walk and a bonfire and still had time for the Swanage Ferry on the way home!

What our young carers said...

happy, cool, fun, amazing, good, being with friends...

We'd love to welcome Barnardos back next year with some more deserving young carers and with your support we can do just that!
