Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, face-to-face sessions are currently suspended. The team is looking at providing vouchers and care packages for young carers and their families over the summer holidays for them to be able to access leisure break services. If you are interested in finding out more, please email youngcarers@richmondcarers.org and the team will respond in the week beginning 13th July in relation to these queries.

School Holiday programme

Richmond Carers Centre runs a school holiday respite programme for young carers registered with us every half term and during school holidays. Activities include, workshops, day trips, sports, creative pursuits, outdoor activities and experience activities – such as AirKix skydiving. Holiday Respite Programme activities are sent to registered young carers in the weeks before they begin and are very popular so advance booking is required.

Young Carers Trip Policy

Please note that young carers trips have only a limited number of places and trips are frequently oversubscribed. While these places are offered to young carers free of charge, they have been paid for by Richmond Carers Centre. This means that the charity incurs a cost each time a child fails to attend a trip they have been booked onto and another child who could have gone in their place has missed out on the opportunity. It is vital that if your child is unable to attend a trip, you inform us as soon as possible so that we can fill the space.
