“It’s hard helping my brother and my mum. I’m happy to help as it’s what you should do, but sometimes I struggle helping at home and coping with being bullied at school.
I went on a day out with other young carers last year. It made me feel less worried because I now know there are other people like me. It really helped me.
It was brilliant.”
Every year Quarriers children and family services plan a range of trips and activities for the school holidays. Each service knows what will benefit the children, young people and families they support, and what’s available in their area. Each project will have different costs attached to these activities, from bus hire and packed lunch provision to entry costs,and even providing sun tan cream for the kids. We ask for a donation of £10 per child in order to average these out.
It is contributions from the public that make it possible for children like Max to get at least one day of freedom and fun. Without your donation, we couldn’t take children for days like these:
Your donations will be used to provide a summer day out for a child we support. If we exceed the money needed then your donation will be used where it’s needed most within Quarriers. Thank you.
