Activity Groups - The Thursday activity groups are for young carers with a large caring role and who find it difficult to access social activities. The groups give young carers a break from their caring responsibilities and a chance to take part in confidence building activities. We provide a variety of activities which aim to build young carers' confidence, self-esteem and social skills.

Group Feedback from some of our young carers -

‘Gives me the chance to meet other people like me’

‘They give me time to chill and a break from my caring role’

‘It’s your time to forget everything’

Issue Based groups - Held on a monthly basis the Wednesday group gives young carers a chance to take part in a whole host of creative, constructive and rewarding activities. From craft based sessions to special visits from guest speakers to celebration parties and indoor sports evenings these groups remain relaxed, friendly and professionally organised.

The groups allow young carers to talk about their caring role in a safe and supportive environment.

The venue for each group is: The Heatons Centre, Thornfield Road, Heaton Moor, Stockport, SK4 3LD
