Young Carers Festival 2011

Young Carers Festival 2011

This festival for young carers is being held at Fairthorne Manor in Southampton from Friday 24th - Sunday 26th June. The theme for this year is 'Resilience' - the Voice Zone will focus on ways in which projects can work to increase the resilience of young carers to enable them to face any challenges.

The festival is an opportunity for young carers to forget their responsibilities and have fun. The packed weekend programme of activities includes:
  • Outdoor pursuits
  • Fireworks
  • Arts activities
  • Disco
  • Campfire
  • Live music
  • and a chance to relax.

    You will be staying in tents so you will need to bring a sleeping bag, pillow, two changes of clothes, waterproofs, sun block, disco clothing, torch, water bottle, a cheap battery-operated radio, plus a big smile and plenty of laughter.

    How to Book
    If you would like to attend the festival, please contact your local Young Carers group and ask them to consider bringing a group to the festival.
