Young Carers Enjoy Unforgettable Summer Festival
5th July 2023
No Limits and Young Carers in Southampton took 16 young carers to the 2023 Young Carers Festival. The group camped out from Friday 30th June – Sunday 2nd July at the festival at Fairthorne Manor, which brings together young carers from across the country.
Emma, from our Young Carers team, said “The Young Carers Festival was an amazing and unforgettable experience. It was a chance for the young people to have a break from their caring roles and have some fun. They immersed themselves fully in the festival, enjoyed making new friends and took part in numerous activities, including the opening ceremony with drumming and fireworks, stand up paddleboarding, zip wire, disco, fun fair rides, roller disco voice zone (to have their say), climbing, abseiling, jumpy pillow, inflatable obstacle course and arts and crafts. Roll on YCF 2024!”
A huge thank you to the YMCA and the Children’s Society for organising the festival, and Happy Days Children’s Charity, Southampton City Council & The Children’s Society for funding the places for our Young Carers.
