The Young Carers Festival allows these incredible children and young people to get a break from caring and a chance to have fun and be kids! There are so many young carers responsible for the health and wellbeing of either their siblings or adults.
Here, we had a drop in session throughout the day in which the children took part in building this willow unicorn which had messages of hopes and wishes for the future tied on to them.
This was an incredibly moving project to be part of and made me fully value the importance of creative therapies.

Through Impact Arts, as well as facilitating weekly creative activities, I deliver drop in activities for children and youth groups at festivals. This is always lots of fun! It is important to provide creative options within a busy environment to allow people to recharge, and express.
