Youth Action Wiltshire

Youth Action Wiltshire received a £15,000 ERSF grant to provide staff training, support and respite activities for up to 24 young carers at a time over the course of a year.

The carers, aged five to 18 years, were given advice and support, and engaged in various arts projects, healthy living projects and sports. The money gave Youth Action Wiltshire the stability to increase the amount and type of work undertaken.

“Without this funding,” said Young Carers Service Manager Victoria Clare, “we would have been unable to undertake the work in the ruraly located area of Kennet. The young carers and their cared for relatives have told us they have found this support nvaluable.”
