During carers week 2017, the Young Carers Team will be walking to work to raise much needed funds to help pay for some summer fun for our 700 young carers. Staff will be walking from all over Gateshead (and Wallsend!) to raise money to fund our summer activities. Being a young carer can be very challenging at times. Some young carers feel overwhelmed and struggle to cope. Having a break and having some fun is so important for these children. A fun day out allows them to just be a child for the day.

You can help by donating via our Just Giving page. All money raised goes directly to providing activities.
