Young Carers Adventure Residential – February 2023
During half term week, our young carers wasted no time at the Brathay Trust residential activity week. Our third and final Deal for Communities funded project where 15 young carers faced their fears, led by example, learnt new skills, demonstrated fantastic teamwork, created new friendships and all in all had a fabulous time at Brathay Hall Activity Centre in Ambleside, Cumbria.
They enjoyed 4 non-stop days of activities which included whale boat rowing across Lake Windermere, orienteering around the Brathay grounds, Ghyll Scrambling in the Langdales and learning how to use climbing ropes for wall climbing and mountaineering plus much more.
Supported by a fantastic team of qualified instructors and our committed and superb volunteer, Joanne Pettit, our group of young carers felt confident to challenge their fears whilst having great fun and making new friends.

They were an exemplary representation of the Wigan and Leigh community and we were delighted and privileged to be part of such a fantastic project.
