Young carers had the opportunity to have some fun last week at an event by the Mid Sussex Young Carers Partnership.

Some 21 young carers aged six to 11, who normally spend their days caring for family, took part in a range of activities including pond dipping and art and crafts. Paul Myles, from Burgess Hill Youth, said: “It was great to see another good initiative come to fruition creating a most enjoyable fun day for young carers whilst embracing a multi-agency team spirit.”
