Active Young Carers is a new project created by Carers Trust Wales, working in partnership with Carers Trust Carmarthenshire Crossroads Care.

Carers Trust Carmarthenshire Crossroads Care





Together - thanks to a grant from the Big Lottery Fund - we will deliver a pilot programme to improve positive mental health and wellbeing, addressing the lack of opportunities to engage in sport or regular physical activity.

We will be identifying the barriers associated with young carers accessing physical activities and running a one day ‘mini Olympics’ event for young carers, which will also include a mental health and wellbeing workshop.

This event will run during the Autumn half-term, and we are expecting around 30 young carers and their families to attend.
