Fusion (Young Carers)

 

Funded by BBC Children in Need, Fusion Youth Groups are for young carers aged 11-16 who help to care for or who live with a disabled person in their household.

Young carers’ responsibilities may include additional work around the house such as cooking, cleaning, looking after siblings or involve direct care to another person such as helping them to wash, dress and take medication. Fusion groups are also for youngsters who may not have these responsibilities but whose lives are impacted by living with a disabled person in their household, maybe a sibling or parent, whose care needs mean that these youngsters lifes can at times be challenging.

Sessions are free to attend, include a meal and are led by our friendly and experienced Sessional Workers who will ensure that all youngsters are fully included. Activities change weekly but include arts and crafts, cooking, games and chill out time, helping to develop independence, self esteem and confidence.

It's a great opportunity for youngsters to make new friends, learn new skills and most importantly have loads of fun and some time just for them.

Fortnightly sessions run at Compass Wellbeing in Taunton and monthly sessions run at our outreach venues in Wellington, Highbridge and Bridgwater.

Each session is limited to 10 youngsters so reserving places is essential. It is easy to reserve your space online. Choose “Book Online Now” or click the red button above, then select “Fusion” and then the location of your choice.
