Creation Trust has recently secured one years funding to deliver interventions, support and respite for up to fifteen young carers aged 10-16 who live on and around the Aylesbury and Rockingham estates in Southwark. The project will provide three hours of activities over forty-eight weeks.
The group will engage young carers in a programme of activities and events covering topics such as sexual health, healthy eating, managing a budget and first aid. As well as an educational element, the programme will importantly allow young carers respite and an opportunity to take part in a varied programme of play and activities. One to one support (if appropriate) will also be offered, relating to the young personâ€™s individual caring responsibilities.
About Creation Trust
The Creation Trustâ€™s vision is to help transform the Aylesbury Estate into a thriving neighborhood through delivering social and economic change. The Creation Trust is the successor organisation to the former regeneration funded programme, Aylesbury New Deal for Communities which existed on the estate for 10 years.
To achieve this vision Creation has six objectives focusing on the twin themes of People and Place. These objectives constitute key activity areas:
Nearest tube: Elephant & Castle underground station (Northern and Bakerloo lines).
Nearest Railway Station: Elephant & Castle
Buses from Elephant and Castle: ask bus driver for Burgess Park. Bus numbers: 12, 171, 148, 176, 68, 484, 42, 40, 45
