“ Today's Trip our guests were Cheshire Young Carers our guests gave us a couple of thank you cards at the end of the trip, first time that has happened, and it was very kind of them to do that. It was an absolute pleasure to have such a lovely group of people on the boat. ”

“ Thank you for giving Dominic this great experience, he has had an amazing time and says he didn’t want to come home!! he is still buzzing about it. Thank you for helping me in helping him to gain more independence and life skills. He loved the zip wire activity and the body boarding and was full of educational facts about the hidden garden. He wants us to all go as a family. ”


“ What a fantastic programme this Summer! Many thanks to everyone who has worked so hard to organise or contribute to it. Thank you again. ”


“ My son attends Cheshire Young Carers and I have to say what an absolute amazing charity this is, it gives the young carers some fantastic opportunities which they may never have had experienced without the charity. Hats off to all the staff they are all welcoming and caring towards the young carers and it's them that make the charity and of course all the lovely kind donations. ”


“ We have a fantastic group of Young Carers staying with us this week from around Cheshire. I've been lucky to spend a little time today with 10 year old Caitlyn who helps to look after her twin brothers, one of whom has additional needs. Caitlyn talked so positively about taking on this role, it was clear that she's a caring young girl who loves to help. Cheshire Young Carers provides fortnightly sessions for these fantastic children, a time for them to play and have fun and to meet other children who are taking on a caring role. Caitlyn told me how much she loves these sessions and how great it is to spend time with other children who are 'helpful' too. We're honoured to offer these amazing children a break away from their caring roles in a supportive, fun and safe environment here at CAFT. These children deserve to be celebrated every day of the week, but especially today - National Siblings Day today. We're in awe of these caring young children and it's an honour to spend time with them during their stay. ”


“ Cheshire Young Carers are amazing. They have helped my girls through some very tough times. The staff are amazing, I class them as friends. Nothing is too much trouble and they are always at the end of a phone if needed. Thank you so much. ”


“ A huge thank you to all the team who work so hard to arrange these events- what an amazing opportunity for the children! ”


“ Cheshire Young Carers do a fab job helping and supporting their young carers in their roles and also helping them to be kids again. My daughter’s confidence has grown so much since attending these sessions. From the bottom of my heart I thank Cheshire Young Carers and children adventure farm trust for everything you do. she has just arrived home and had an amazing time. ”


“ Joining Cheshire Young Carers as a volunteer in May of last year has enabled me to rebuild the confidence I’d felt I had lost in supporting young people. When I started with Cheshire Young Carers my confidence had hit rock bottom and I wasn’t sure how I’d get on but working with Cheshire Young Carers and the young carers has given me back some of that confidence I’d lost as well as being an absolute joy to support you all with what you do so thank you. ”


“ The Fly Day was SO AMAZING! cannot thank the Cheshire Young Carers team, the pilots, police helicopter staff and support staff enough for this fantastic opportunity for all my boys. Nothing was too much trouble, everyone did so much to make them feel special, and give them such happy memories. They learnt a lot. To have an event that the whole family could share in was fab. To see my 13 year old autistic son go from being too scared to fly to going up and actually flying the plane- “thank you” doesn’t even begin to cover it. ”
