Preparing your child for an overnight stay to give the others a break is real difficult. Being autistic sometimes means that a change in routine or something new needs preparing for like a military operation, but throw PDA (pathological demand avoidance ) into the mix and we have a real challenge. We have an awesome storyboard book for her, but she’s not coming around. I have told her that if she chooses to come home then that’s fine, and she chooses to go then that’s fine too. Both buses are on standby, teacher has been informed, and bags will be packed and delivered to school later so that doesn’t make her anxious. I know she really enjoys herself! But I just hope that her anxiety doesn’t increase about the demand because so many placements have broken down due to this and it’s so sad to see her stop doing things she’s enjoys! πŸ’—

Last week I took my husband @kennyg1080 fo his first visit to the @tate We have talked about it for ages but having an #autismboy massively complicates getting time alone together for this kind of trip.
But, due it recently being our 10 year wedding anniversary and upcoming Father’s Day, I decide it was time to treat ourselves to a day out. Thanks to #respitecare and a very understanding #youngcarer daughter we went and had the absolute pleasure of meting a young #Autistic artist who asked if he could draw our portrait. It was by far our favourite part of the trip, and for a moment I could say my portrait hung in the #tatemodern
One day I #hope that this young man will have an entire exhibition for us to view. #autismartist

What happens on a CHICKS break?

On each break, there are 8 boys and 8 girls. The breaks are divided into age groups, so children are all of a similar or same age. There are also three break leaders, who are CHICKS staff, and up to six adult volunteers.
Children have the chance to try lots of different activities, like horse riding, body boarding or rock climbing. They also spend lots of time enjoying the outdoors, with visits to the beach and the beautiful countryside surrounding our retreats in Cornwall and Derbyshire.
Each week at CHICKS is different, depending on the group and the weather! As well as all the activities, a week's break might also include a trip to an adventure park or the chance for children to learn new skills - for example, on a bush craft session.
Children are encouraged and supported to try something new and have fun at the same time, but no child is forced to take part in anything they don't want to!
Help us say "yes" to more children - there are lots of ways! chicks.org.uk

We are 🎺 πŸ“£ BEYOND EXCITED πŸ“£ 🎺 to announce the launch of a new resource, 'People Like Us', as part of Carers Week! We know that 68% of young carers are bullied and miss an average of 48 school days a year but that often schools don't recognise or understand what challenges young carers may be facing at home. We've put together a resource which helps to identify and support these children. You can find more details on our website (the direct link is in our profile). 😊❀️

Our carers tell us that looking after someone who is prone to falls can be very stressful. Dehydration can contribute to dizziness and is a regular factor in falls. So, as part of Carers Week and in collaboration with Guildford and Waverley CCG and Surrey County Council we have put together an event with information and advice on keeping hydrated and preventing falls. If you'd like to join us tomorrow in Godalming, please email Hasu on training@actionforcarers.org.uk or call 07884 976 796. We have (LOTS OF!!) tea, cake and giveaways. #CarersWeek #reducingcarerstress

"Fly Day was an amazing event"
"I've never had this much fun before"
"This was the coolest thing I've ever done"
We were given the wonderful opportunity to run another annual National Fly Kids Day - we were able to take our young carers to Chester Airport to explore the airfield, tour the airport and take a short flight with qualified pilots. It was a huge hit with the young carers.

100% enjoyed their day
100% wanted to do it again
100% learnt something new

We had an amazing time on our Forest Adventure Day.
Swinging on the low ropes, racing canoes on the lake, challenging one another, trying their hand at archery, the cave bus and having great fun getting soaked in the lake - our young carers teamed up to take on new exciting challenges and face their fears.

A big thank you to our volunteers Hayley and Ryan who got stuck in and helped the younger children who were nervous about trying out the more challenging activities.

The feedback was amazing, 100% of our young carers enjoyed their day and everyone wanted to do it all again! πŸ™Œ

Thank you, young carers. This is your week.
A #youngcarer is an unpaid #carer typically 6-21 in age. They care for friends and family, often including parents at the same time as they care for siblings. It is mentally, physically, and mentally draining.

5th June: favourite - my favourite thing is seeing this girl happy. She has such a lot to contend with not only having ADHD, dyspraxia, and ASD and struggling understanding people and relationships. But now I have cancer and she has to cope with me doing less, being unwell and my treatment, and surgery. She is my world and a super star even when I wish to throttle her sometimes. #fmsphotoaday #fmspad #june #fms_favourite #favourite #horseriding #horsemad #ADHD #ASD #dyspraxia #youngcarer #askefieldproject #carefarm #theaskefieldproject

We are very proud to unveil our short animation Codename Carers. It It aims to help young carers self-identify and recognise that there is specialised support available for them – as well as make armed forces personnel, schools, professionals and voluntary bodies aware of the existence of young carers in the armed forces environment. .
There are currently 6,200 service personnel, 250 reservists and an estimated 42,000 veterans living in Surrey, with a potential 2,865 armed forces children . A number of these children will be caring for family members – usually parents or siblings – although there is no data on the exact figures. But young carers in this community face unique challenges – especially when a parent is on active service. .
Our new short animation shows children, and the adults around them, what the life of an armed forces young carer is like. Created in a very engaging and colourful style, Codename Carers depicts some of the many challenges young armed forces carers can face. .
You can view the film via a Youtube channel https://buff.ly/2sxVRHZ and if you or someone you know would like to access some free information, advice and support then please get in touch on 0303 040 1234.

My son, 1 of the 4 corners of my world, my carer for five years, my rock for many more, my support network, my laughter and smiles, he’s so much more than just my boy, so much more than the world outside might see. I love you son and as always I’m here with you today, wish I could take away the pain you’ve had to go through. I’ll be here to help you pick up the pieces when it’s all over. Please give up a little prayer for me and my boy it’s a rough day for us and we could use all the support we can get ❣️ #parenthood #mumandson #carer #youngcarer #court #donttakemyson #freedec #hedontdeserveit #givehimabreak #noangel #lovehim #myworld #mykidsaremylife #weneedhim #livingwithra #lungdisease #rheumatoidarthritis #warrior #wolfinsheepsclothing

Such a blessed mum!! I told her last night after she had helped me with personal care that she could use her ipad for a while before bed.
Her response.."is it ok if i go and do some washing up first? Please mum?" I was dumbfounded....what 17yo chooses chores over an ipad?!

Some of our Young Carers had a very exciting trip up to the Big Smoke...
What an experience it was to attend Tuesday’s drinks reception on the House of Commons Terrace, sponsored by the Family Building Society. (Surrey Young Carers are one of their four charities.) Michelle Harper, Debbie Bell, along with two young carers Veronica and Billy travelled together to Waterloo - Veronica’s first ever journey on a train.
.
We walked to the House of Commons, taking photos on the way. Inside, we entered the amazing building - full of history, with wide stone staircases, huge murals on the walls, ceilings with detailed stonework and huge stained glass windows with so much detail you cannot take it all in.
.
We arrived a little early so used the opportunity to watch the final five minutes of a debate and then watched the session close. On arrival at the reception we were greeted by the Rt Hon Chris Grayling MP who made us feel very welcome. We enjoyed drinks and canapΓ©s whilst mingling with the guests inside and out on the terrace, watching the boats go by on the Thames. We stayed for the speeches before walking back to the train station to be on our way home. We all agreed we had been very lucky to be invited and to experience the whole evening was fantastic - the memory will stay with us all for a very long time. .
A huge thanks to the Family Building Society, and also to Active Minibuses, who kindly gave a free taxi ride on the way home.

Stephane Alexis, 24, has put his own goals and aspirations on hold to help his parents care for his younger brother Torence, who has cerebral palsy. He spends upwards of 20 hours per week caring for Tor and has noticed the toll that caregiving can take mentally as well as physically. β€œIt’s not an easy job. He needs you for everything, so you have to be taking care of him 24/7” Stephane says.

Young caregivers are an often overlooked population with millions of children and young adults caring for loved ones with little access to emotional as well as financial support.

You would have been 67. Happy birthday to my crazy mom..gone too soon. For those new to this page, my mom lived and died with Young Onset Dementia in her 40s, when I was just a teenager.

Her birthday used to be hard for me. Especially since mine is 2 days later. But I've been so fortunate to have been able to use my experiences as a Young Caregiver to become a dementia specialist. I work with people living with dementia coping with a new diagnosis or transitioning through the phases and families across the dementia journey.

This year, I'm weirdly peaceful. I attribute it to my daily mindfulness practice.
