Carers’ Support Centre

At their June meeting the Honourable Company’s Charitable Trustees awarded a grant to Young Carers Bristol & South Gloucestershire to support their 13 Up Club.  The club provides a safe, supportive environment for young carers to have a break from caring.  The upcoming 12-month programme will give them new skills including cookery and first aid. They will have some well-deserved fun with arts and crafts, games and sport.  Perhaps most importantly they will meet other young carers and make friends, helping to combat the loneliness and isolation many of them suffer.
