After School Clubs & School Holidays
During term time after school clubs are held at our bungalow in Admirals Way, these clubs are a fantastic opportunity for young carers to relax, and enjoy the company of other people in a similar situation. The trusty AYC minibus is used to pick up young carers from most local schools, and return drop offs home are also available where pick-ups are not possible.
In the school holidays we enjoy some relaxed drop ins to our centre, with children from different age groups coming along to enjoy the fresh air of our garden and take part in games. This service is vital for the young carers, for whom six weeks without the support of their school and friends can be a long time. In the Summer of 2019 we took groups of our Young Carers on some wonderful off-site trips; Bucklebury Farm, two visits to Bournemouth Beach, three trips to a local outdoor swimming pool and Paddleboarding at Southampton Water Activities Centre.
