Our many partnerships in Bristol and South Gloucestershire help us to provide a diverse range of activities and breaks for young carers. We are committed to building partnerships to increase skill sharing and resource sharing and to provide more for young carers. Our partners continue to be generous – giving young carers great support, allowing them to build confidence and giving them the childhood that they deserve.
Young carers gain huge benefits not only in the activities, but also from the chance to meet up with each other. Firm friendships are made and the peer-to-peer support that they give to each other is invaluable.
