Get Young Carers an Activity in Banbury!
Get Banbury Town to offer an activity to Young Carers!
Banbury, Oxfordshire, offers many activities to young people; these activities range from Leisure Centres, Football Clubs to Cadets. However the town does not offer any activities for Young Carers. These young people would spend most of their free time caring for their siblings, parents or grandparents. Over one in five Carers spend over 50 hours a week on their caring responsibilities.
I am petitioning for Banbury to start an activity or to open a club/facility especially for Young Carers in the Banbury area. The club would be a place where the young people can meet, and socialise with other Young Carers, like themselves.
The facility should offer many different activities for the young people; ranging from Sporting Activities to Art and Craft- Professional help and advice about caring will also be offered.
The facility would offer something for each and every Young Carer living in and around the Banbury area.
Funding the activity can be provided by sponsorships from local businesses and lots of fundraising from schools around Banbury.
Please support me with the issue, help raise awareness and hopefully soon, Banbury Town Council will offer an activity to the amazing Young Carers of Banbury.
