For many families, school holidays provide a chance to spend quality time together. For young carers holidays can be a time of heightened pressure and isolation. There are over 700,000 young carers in Britain who on average take on 17 hours of caring responsibilities per week. Some care for more than 50.
Create provides free collaborative creative arts workshops, giving young carers a fun, social outlet where they can build skills and invest quality time in their wellbeing. By supporting Create you open up a world of colour, music and opportunity, giving young carers vital time away from their responsibilities to invest in their own wellbeing.
Thank you to Mumsnet for spreading the word about our work with young carers by featuring the #creatingopportunity campaign on their website.
