Our Young Carers Notts service hosted a Halloween Spooktacular party for young carers at the service’s Mansfield HQ last week.

The event included Halloween games such as apple bobbing, pumpkin carving, a slime lucky dip, musical chairs, and a toilet paper mummifying competition! Young carers enjoyed hot dogs and doughnuts for lunch with plenty of sweet treats.

During lunch the group took part in a range of tasks aimed at finding out what support they need from the young carers service and in places such as schools and at home.

The event also gave young carers the chance to have a break from their care role, socialise with friends and have fun in a safe environment.

Young Carers Notts is a free and confidential service that supports young carers aged 5-17 who live in Nottinghamshire and the City of Nottingham to take a break and get practical advice and information about caring.
