Fun and Freedom Club - Friends and Families of Special Children
Offering young carers a chance to make new friends in a similar situation, it offers lots of fun with weekend clubs, days out and trips away.
Young Carers do lots to help someone in their family. You may help a parent to get up, to get washed and dressed or to get around in wheelchair. You may have to do lots of the household chores like shopping, cleaning, cooking and maybe look after 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 you
- Someone who will listen when you need it, 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, horse 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 run regular meetings, allowing you time to meet other young carers and have some fun away from your caring role.
