Does your child deserve some fun time away from home? Or are you an organisation who comes into contact with young people who need a break? WhoCares? is a fun social hub offering activities for children whose home life is impacted by caring for a family member or are unable to attend out of school clubs and activities because of their current home circumstances. WhoCares? is a special place for them to attend once a month where they can just be themselves, have some fun and meet other youngsters who they can share their experiences with.
All activities and trips are completely free to attend! Funded by The National Lottery Community Fund.
We have the desire to create a ‘different kind of space’ for young people who help look after a relative in their family. Young Carers may look after someone who is affected by illness, this could be a disability, long term illness, mental health condition, or a drug or alcohol problem. Through our consultations with members of our local community we were painfully aware that there is a long history of the lack of provision for these young people to come together and have some fun! So we launched Who Cares?
Who Cares is an activity hub offering young carers the opportunity to spend time away from their day to day responsibilities within the home. It’s a special place for them to attend where they can just be themselves, have some fun and meet other youngsters who they can share their experiences with.
We provided monthly activity hubs and special days out for a growing number of young people from our base at The Gospel Oak Community Centre in Hall Green. Some of the activities we offer are shown below:
In additional to our regular events, we also offer days trips and residential hoidays. See our Gallery of Photographs for more information.
