Young carers in North Somerset were invited to Bristol trampoline park, Airhop to get creative and transform one of its activity spaces.

North Somerset Alliance Young Carers is supported by the YMCA team in Weston-super-Mare through monthly drop in sessions, staff and resources.

During October half term Airhop invited 15 young carers to its trampoline park in Patchway, Bristol to give one of its party rooms a musical makeover. With the help of graffiti artist, Tom Sturgess the group spray painted the space with a DJ design.

Damien Erangey, Youth and Community Hub Manager in Weston-super-Mare said, “This was a great opportunity for young carers to meet other young people who have experienced caring at a young age and encourage social opportunities that they may miss out on.”

The project was filmed by BBC for Children in Need. You can view the whole video here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p06rvgvc
