Caring for Carers

Caring for younger brothers or sisters or looking after a member of the family with a long term illness or disability can be tough for a young person, with little time to spend on themselves.


The Active Young Carers (AYC) programme is designed to give young carers the opportunity to enjoy some leisure activities at a much reduced cost and spend time with friends or other young carers. 

Join Today and Get an AYC Card

Staying fit and healthy is also important for all young carers and also to those being cared for and who rely on much needed support.  The AYC Card will allow young carers aged 11-18 to take part in lots of different sports activities including swimming, badminton, table tennis, gym, footgolf and pitch and putt at a fraction of the standard cost.

A young carer can take part in 10 activities for £1 each time (Card price £10 in total). When the card is finished, another one can be applied for with a maximum of 3 in total.
