Heroes group is for 8-12 year olds. It is run fortnightly for 2 hours for 6 sessions. The sessions aim to improve confidence, self-esteem and find coping strategies. The young carers explore the issues they face in a supportive and gentle way with creative play and activities.
13 Up Club is a group for South Gloucestershire young carers age 13-18. This group is led by the young carers who choose the range of activities each week. It is a space for young carers to be young people and enjoy time with peers who know what life is like as a young carer. The group is held on a Saturday once a month.
We refer young carers to suitable groups and positive activities locally.
