Young Carers Festival 2017 - 30th June to 2nd July

Wow! We had a blast at the Young Carers Festival last weekend, 30th June - 2 July 2017!

Over 1500 young carers all came together at Fairthorne Manor in Southampton for a weekend of fun, activities, learning and friendship. Carers in Bedfordshire took 20 young carers, two staff members and a volunteer, lots of tents, lots of crisps and lots of energy. The weather did us proud and made the festivities all the more fun.

This year was the 18th year the festival was run. It is run by the YMCA in partnership with The Children's Society and gives young carers a break from thier caring roles and a chance to meet others in similar situations, as well as try activities they may never have done before. Activities this year included climbing, water sports, arts and crafts, a slient disco and a football tournament which the 'Bedford Rovers' won!
