Young carers do a lot to help someone in their family. You may help a parent get up, get washed and dressed, or get around in a wheelchair. You may have to do lots of household chores like shopping, cleaning, and cooking, and maybe look after your younger brothers and sisters too.

You may be the brother or sister of a disabled child and have to help them with things, or it may be difficult to enjoy family outings.

Do you do some of these things for someone in your family?

The Fun and Freedom Club can offer you:

  • Lots of fun with weekend clubs, days out, trips away, activities
  • A chance to make new friends in a similar situation to yours
  • Someone who will listen when you need it and who is on your side
  • Information and advice for the whole family

Joining our club is free and all our activities are subsidised

We organise all sorts of activities and trips, such as Dartmoor Zoo Rangers, bowling, theme parks, tobogganing and skiing, abseiling, gorge walking, pottery, horseback riding, water sports, and activity weekends.

We also give you the opportunity to tell us what activities you would like us to run.

Fun and Freedom Club runs regular meetings, allowing you time to meet other young carers and have some fun away from your caring role.
