Young Carers Update

Burgess Hill Youth held its Young Carers Summer Holidays Activity programme over the last week.  This included a trip to Chessington World of Adventures on 25 July, Go Karting on 27 July, Horse riding on 30 July and Abbey Field Care Home for a seaside event on 31 July.  All events were very successful and were attended by a total of 53 young carers aged 6-16 years.

Burgess Hill Youth are very grateful to the volunteer drivers from Burgess Hill Girls School that drove us to the 3 of the events and for the loan of the bus for Chessington World of Adventures.

Young carers are children and young people who help look after a member of the family who is sick, disabled or has mental health problems, or is misusing drugs or alcohol. They may be someone who has direct caring responsibilities or they may be someone whose life is affected as a result of living with someone who has these conditions.
