YAC’s Day Out at the Lake

Huge thanks to FIND NATHAN Fund, who made it possible for Gloucestershire Young Carers to take 25 young adult carers to the South Cerney lakes for a day of activity, fun, relaxation and connection.

It was amazing to see so many young adult carers who are new to our service having a fantastic time paddleboarding and canoeing for the first time at the beautiful surroundings of the lakes, especially the ones who were very nervous to start, but loved every moment once on the water, building confidence and simply having fun.

After the water sports, the young people enjoyed a delicious BBQ lunch provided by Alexander Burn Funeral Directors and Tesco (thank you so much!), and an afternoon of chilling, chatting, making new friends, playing cards, garden games, hula hooping, juggling and taking in the calming and stunning nature around them.

“The chance to do a fun activity I’ve not been able to do before”

“It was very entertaining and was lovely having a laugh with people and the support from the staff members”
