What we do / Beth rydyn ni’n ei wneud?

Young Carers are a key part of our team, and as team members, it means we all play an integral role in the design of our programmes – including the way we want them to look, the way they’re delivered and the direction we take them in.

Here are some examples of our fabulous projects:

The Forest

This idea stemmed from one of our innovative ‘big conversations’ with Young Carers where we simply asked ourselves, “What could do that would help us to be our best selves?”

From that simple question, we all came to the conclusion that we’d really like to spend more time outside – amidst the trees and the rivers, the stars and the seas. From camping, learning how to make a campfire, being able to name some of the beautiful trees and plants that surround us to foraging and exploration, The Forest programme aims to encapsulate all these wonderful activities as a way to both enjoy nature and look after our wellbeing.

We’re currently working with Young Carers across Wales as well as various organisations who are helping us make this project a reality!


Food from Superheroes

Our amazing Food from Superheroes project is a book filled with healthy, nutritious recipes offered by our Young Carer Team for other Young Carers to enjoy. Again, this idea arose from a team conversation with Young Carers where we discussed food and how it can often either make us feel super or make us feel quite rotten depending on what it is we eat.

So, we put on our deerstalker caps, and like Sherlock Holmes investigated the connection between food and the way we feel. We discovered that eating the right foods can give you spectacular superpowers, and having some fabulous recipes in a handy book would be something all superheroes could enjoy!


Leadership

Sometimes, being a leader means asking people to follow you, and having the confidence to lead is an important part of leadership. Our Leadership Programme instils confidence and encourages Young Carers to use their creativity to solve problems, work in a team, and work collaboratively with others.
