Activities

TYCS arranges regular activities during school holidays and some evenings and weekends. The activities could be open to the whole family, certain age ranges or open to all Young Carers. The activities aim to give the Young Carers respite from caring responsibilities and to encourage play and social development. The activities also give the Young Carer’s an opportunity to build friendships with other children in similar circumstances. Some recent activities for example are:

Donkey Sanctuary Day Out | Bear Trail at Collumpton | Orchard Forest School | Ready, Steady, Cook Course at South Devon College |Picnics

In addition to holiday activities, during the term times there are groups every month in Torquay, Paignton and Brixham. These tend to be afterschool or a Saturday morning and provide a break away from the home environment. The activities change, but it is typically led at the requests of the Young Carers. Snacks are provided and it gives a safe environment to socialise and engage with other Young Carers locally.
