Asking for help is not a sign of weakness. You aren't less of a man. You aren't a silly woman. You aren't a helpless child.

You're courageous. You're stronger than you know. You're a winner.

For young carers the summer holidays can enhance that feeling of being different from peers. Many will not get to experience a holiday away from home and research published by Action for Children and Carers Trust last week shows that more than half of young carers worry about talking about what they did in the summer break when they go back to school.

The statistics are heart-breaking… nearly three quarters of young carers feel isolated over the summer and 68% report that they feel more stressed or worried during the holidays with 47% spending four hours or more a day looking after a relative. The summer holidays are supposed to be a time of relaxation, play, and a chance to recharge batteries. But many young carers miss out on the benefits of a long summer break.

Here at Action for Carers Surrey, we have found that there is an increase in the number of young carers referred to Surrey Young Carers over the summer, many of them referring themselves. Once they come to us though, we can really help to make the summer holiday something they can look forward to.

Our experienced young carer support co-ordinators get to know the young carer and deliver targeted support, geared around the young carer’s specific needs. This can include one-to-one chats, days out with other young carers, and support groups which give young carers the chance to make friends with other young people in a similar situation.

If you or someone you know is a young carer who would benefit from our services, then please do get in touch.

Do you have a caregiver? Yes. Then you know how hard they work. How organised and complex it is. My friend Emmory who has #EDS is helping caregivers Please support her in her efforts @packagesforcaregivers
Care packages for caregivers is an organization that sends care packages to those struggling with chronic mental and/or physical illness. Caregivers do so much for us and we created this organization as a way to give back and say thanks for all that they do. We rely completely on donations and funding from our Etsy shop as we want to be able to send care packages free of charge.

It is crucial that the awareness around young carers and their roles is raised and it's incredible to see these discussions being held today across mainstream media. Stories of isolation and loneliness are ones heard all too frequently, every year in fact – which is why combating this is at the heart of what Cheshire Young Carers do.
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-wales-45042452/young-carers-it-would-be-nice-to-go-out-with-my-friends

Similar feedback received from our own young carers is exactly why the school holidays are our busiest time of year. Our summer programme has expanded year on year to now, 2018, where Cheshire Young Carers provide over 40 activities for young carers across Cheshire during the summer holidays.

It is a relief to see the recognition of young carers and their needs in the media, Cheshire Young Carers are so proud to be supporting families to ensure that children are given a break and a chance to enjoy fun with their friends during the school holidays.

With these discussions being so prominent and the positive impact of work like ours being so evident, the team are all hopeful that someday there will be no negative impact of being a young carer.
Cheshire Young Carers envisage a world where everyone will be able to see what incredible individuals young carers are, provide them the same chances and opportunities as others and celebrate them in the same way we do.

She’s grown up so much ♥️ she’s off for a day at an outdoor pool with her friends today (and 1 friends Mum - she’s not THAT old 😂). She gets up, does the dishwasher, makes sure her rooms tidy, asks if I want anything else doing before grinning and asking for £1 😂 then she’s out. And honestly I lucked out in how good this kid is ♥️ polite, sensible. Missing the summers where she was allll about us(swipe for her first summer hol)... but in spite of her occasional smart arse attitude it’s a real pleasure to watch her grow. ♥️

Happy 9th #birthday to my #snapchat #selfie #partnerincrime .

Where have these 9 years gone??? You’ve grown up to to be the kindest, most caring girl I know! You are selfless and wise beyond your years! You hold so much on your shoulders and yet even though you have the odd tantrum 99% of the time you never moan, you just smile! You help me with your sisters needs and help you #autistic #brother calm down when he is struggling. You are a #youngcarer and 9 years ago I never saw this in your future! I am so proud of you! You are my star! .

The years fly by ...
These two ...
They've been buddies for years .
They've been through a lot together , one remembers ,one doesn't..
One recalls days gone by ...one forgets ..
One has always been the little big brother while the other hasn't ever given it a thought ...
One misses the other even though he is still here with him,
The other flashes glances of remembrance or maybe that's just wishful thinking ...
Yes the years fly by ..
These two ..
He ain't heavy ,he's my brother

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity of being part of @instituteofdirectors InGoodCompany Campaign.
For a while now as some of you may know I’ve been sharing parts of my life with people in the hope that someone will be encouraged and encounter God.
Someone once told me “your story has transformative power” that my friends is called Jesus.

I really enjoy our Thursdays. Violet loves her ballet time and it's really nice to see her getting some time just for her. She helps me care so much for Logan.
Let's hope she takes to her new Saturday class in September 💜

When your 11 year old is almost the same size as the England under 17s girls players. She is definitely the best defender on the pitch as off when it comes to her little brother. She heard something on the television today derogatory said about #autism and instantly said “I want to put my foot through the telly” god help anyone in her soon to be secondary school should they ever say a bad word about ANYONE with different abilities in front of my girl. #proudofmyyoungcarerdaughter #specialneedssiblings #youngcarer #englandgirls #englandgirlsfootball

Last week our staff got together to work on how we can best support Surrey's incredible army of carers. 😊 We brought together people from our Young Carers Teams, our Young Adult Carers Team, our Carers Information Centre, our Adult Carers Support Teams and of course many more of the people who work @action_for_carers_surrey to improve the lives of all carers across Surrey.
We each made a pledge to our colleagues and to the carers we support which we hung on this pledge tree ❤️🌳 #passionateaboutcarers

Summer has suddenly come upon us and next week our Summer Programme starts, this means that until September there will be no further fortnightly sessions - the details of the next round will be sent out later in Summer where we will be continuing with our projects, experiments and wonderful education 🙌

We have been working around the clock to secure all place requests and have managed to expand capacity for quite a few events - the demand and support has been overwhelming, it's so great to hear how excited everybody is for summer 🌞⭐️ Thank you so much to everyone who has offered lifts - if you have a spare seat in your car for some events please do let us know if you're able to offer lifts to other young carers who may not have transport - it's much appreciated.

Emails/texts will be sent out before the end of the week with all of the final numbers and confirmed places, these have been delayed as we have been trying to expand capacity on as many events as possible.
Please do refer to the FAQ below if you have any further questions or get in touch with us on events@cheshireyoungcarers.com

The last day of Team YAC's adventure was spent first at the stunning The Lost Gardens of Heligan - a beautiful nature sanctuary with majestic plants and sculptures ⭐️

Afterwards the YAC's were in charge of plans, this resulted in a trip to an indoor water park and a lovely meal out in the evening all planned by Alicia, one of our YACs. A fantastic end to a wonderful trip. We'll be updating you on what the YAC's thought of their residential next week so keep an eye out for their feedback 🙌

We are so thrilled that the Berkeley Group are fundraising for us! Last Saturday a team of 17 jumped out of this plane for us to raise funds for Surrey Young Carers. The money they raise allows us to fund social groups and events which give young carers a chance to have fun, make friends and talk about their caring role. On Saturday 21st another 7 people from Berkeley Group will also be skydiving for us. You can support them via their just giving page: https://buff.ly/2L6oVl3

Today Action for Carers Surrey spent the day working on our action plan for the future. All our staff came together to work out how we can best deliver support to carers. We talked about the areas where we do well but also, importantly, the areas where we can do better. What we learnt was that we are an extremely committed group with a real passion for carers. ❤️Pictured are some of our trustees who joined us for the day :) #carers

As the nation braces itself for a nerve jangling 90 minutes there's another team of brave souls who need your support... Tomorrow, the incredibly dedicated fundraisers at Berkeley Group will be skydiving to raise money for our young carers. The funds they raise will allow us to put on events and social activities which give our young carers a break from their caring role and the chance to hang out with other children with similar responsibilties. A huge thank you to the team at Berkeley Group and good luck!

Yvonne trained at Southampton Hospital qualifying in 1947 and joined the NHS a year later. We've put together an overview of the NHS at 70 from a carer's perspective which you can find on our website. There have been some ups and downs with carers but there are signs to be optimistic...

Several times a day our #daughter is basically forced to play out a repetitive series of events. Currently our #autismboy gets her to do a game he has completely invented which involves hundreds of tiny little cut out characters. This happens over breakfast, after school, before dinner.... basically whenever our #Autistic son needs her interaction. This is the only way he knows how to consistently socialise with her. If we lose a character we have the house upside down to find it, like we were searching for a passport hours before a holiday. This is being a #specialneedssiblings she sacrifices hours of her own day to help him cope with every day life. But she is growing up and with senior school pending she won’t be home nearly as much. My boy is going to be lost without his best friend. And I am a little heartbroken for him, yet excited for her at the same time. #autism #youngcarer #differentdynamic #reallove #proudautismparents

Summer Programmes should be received this week. Below is a quick FAQ about the events 🌞 - What events can we attend?

Events are "aimed at" certain areas due to transport and location limitations, however, if you can transport your young carers to an event further away from your hometown then you're welcome to sign them up to it. - How can we reserve a place?

You won't have a secured place if we don't receive the forms required. These can be sent in the post, scanned or photographed and sent via email.

Please don't send forms recorded delivery as the office so frequently doesn't receive these. - What if we reserve a place and then can't attend?

If your availability changes then please ensure you let us know as soon as possible so that we can offer the spaces to other young carers. - How do you allocate places?

We allocate places on our events on a first come, first serve basis. So don't delay in reserving your space!

When an event fills up, we will aim to put this on social media. - What is the Fit Bit event?

Some of our Young Carers are participating in a Fit Bit project, this event is for those young carers. - The full details aren't on the programme, when will we know more information?

Some events have transport in place, however, we aren't able to organise them until we know who is attending so these will be arranged when we have a register.
Our activities co-coordinator will inform all attendees in advance of the full details of each event nearer to the time so please ensure your correct contact details are on your booking form. - Can I help out in any way?

We often have parents willing to assist in transport and this is welcomed. If you have space and are willing to car share to events then this is really appreciated - please do let us know.

If you have any further questions then please do not hesitate to contact us 🙌

Soooo important to stay hydrated esp. when the weather is 🌡️☀️ hot. Dehydration can lead to dizziness and consequently hugely increases the risk of falls. If you're administering medication during a heatwave try giving it with a full glass of water to encourage a good drink rather than a swig. We've got some more top tips going on our website soon 😊 #survivingaheatwave #carer

The hot, dry weather across Surrey looks set to continue 😎☀️ It's important to stay hydrated in the heat, some people will put off drinking water for fear of night time trips to the loo - leaving the bathroom light on at night can help alleviate worries of falls and make drinking extra fluids a bit less daunting 😊 #stayhydrated #staywell #keepcool #carers

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! 💗
