A young carer is a person aged 7 to 17 with a care responsibility beyond their maturity. They could have a sibling with a disability or a parent with a substance misuse problem or mental issue. Whatever their situation, this festival provides two days of respite, a chance to get away and share new experiences with other like minded young people in similar predicaments.
