KYC Summer Activities

During the summer the Young Carers Team provided a large number of summer activities. We tried to offer something for all age groups in all areas of the county. Dawn and Liz ran arts and crafts workshops in Penzance and St Austell. Young people made sculptures, T- shirts, cards etc (Some of the work of young people can be seen in the photo gallery.) John ran outdoor activities at Porthpean, Gunnislake and climbing in Penryn and Kev ran music sessions and beach activities. There were also trips to Eden and Playzones.

Over 170 young people took part in the activities organised,  the feedback from young people was excellent, along with a list of what they would like to do next time. One of young people said at the arts workshops said “I’ve always wanted to try this and now I have had the chance – it was brilliant and I hope I have the chance to do it again”.
