Crossroads Young Carers
At Crossroads Young Carers we are here to support all Young Carers (aged 8-18). We run two groups, one in Braintree (Carousel Centre, Chapel Hill) and one in Halstead (resource Centre, Parsonage Street). Young Carers can have some fun, enjoy activities such as football, cooking, art and crafts, design a T-shirt, outdoor games, singing and dance, quizzes, whilst mixing with others in the group, who know what it feels like to be a Young Carer. We also arrange trips out during the school holidays, including The London Eye, Colchester Zoo, Thorpe Park, Gunpowder Mills and Harry Potter. The project aims to relieve stress, help Young Carers to have time to themselves, provide information and support, provide someone to talk to who will listen and understand Young Carers problems and raise awareness in the community of the existence of Young Carers, their needs and wishes.
