We arrange 22 trips, training and activity events each year. Each event usually involves around 25 young carers. Be Free Young Carers provides the vital supervision to ensue that the young carers are safe whilst on the trip. A trip involving 25 young carers needs two volunteers to help our staff supervise the group.
Your role, as a volunteer, helps supervise ensuring that all young carers safely enjoy the event and are responded to if needed. It is very rewarding.
Activity events vary in length, some, such as a group trip to Thorpe Park, are a full day, others may be just a half day or an evening. As a volunteer you will receive safeguard training before attending an event.
