The Forest

The Forest – Spending time outdoors and enjoying the nature that surrounds us is so important when it comes to wellbeing. This correlation was uncovered during one of our ‘big conversations’ with Young Carers across Wales who said they’d enjoy spending more time camping, learning about vegetation and trees and planting them, too!

Join in with our team of Young Carers, Llais y Goedwig, Natural Resources Wales, The Woodland Trust and National Forest Wales to see how you can benefit from exploring nature and getting outdoors!

Creativity with Penglais and Rhyl Highschools

Creativity – This was a joint project between Young Carers at Penglais and Rhyl Highschools who became part of our Creative Team here at the Young Carers Academy.

The amazing Young Carers came up with some fabulous ideas for our logo and branding, and with the help of the wonderful young artists at Coleg Menai, we were able to fulfil the Young Carers’ visions and make them a reality – resulting in the branding you see today!
