meet every Tuesday at FAZE

Working in partnership with Faringdon Town Council, we now have a club that meets from 4.30 to 6.30 pm every Tuesday at Faringdon Youth Centre ( FAZE) where the young folk who attend take part in a wide range of arts and craft activities, outdoor sports, pizza nights, music and many other things

We were involved in The Faringdon Play Day, which took place in June and we have plans for more involvement in community activities in the town for the remainder of the year. Plans are also in place for fundraising events to support more youth activities in the town.

Two of the girls that attend the group have taken part in a residential leadership skills course and many other opportunities of this kind are available to members. Over the summer months we are planning outings for swimming, bowling, go-karting etc. with plans for residential personal development opportunities and outward bound courses in place.

What the members have to say about the club “It is somewhere where I can relax and make new friends”

“It’s Awesome, where we can get support when we need it”

“This club is fun and everyone is so friendly”

What or who is a young carer? A Young carer is someone who is usually under the age of 18 who looks after a family member who has a physical illness or disability, a mental health problem or is dependent on drugs or alcohol; this could be a parent, brother or sister. In this context, looking after someone could mean cooking, cleaning and shopping and/or organising the home; helping with personal care – washing and dressing; attending appointments and hospital visiting or simply providing lots of emotional support.

Whatever their caring responsibilities, young carers are young people too and will inevitably need extra help or support from time to time. Common day to day challenges include juggling their caring responsibilities with the pressures of school; finding time to relax and have fun; finding friends to talk to about worries and concerns.
