Angie - Young carer

Angie’s mother died when she was just five years old, leaving her to care for her paralysed father all by herself. Now aged ten, Angie is a full-time young carer which has deprived her of a real childhood.

Going to Silverdale was a truly wonderful experience for Angie, having never left Leeds before, and being able to experience the carefree life of a child for just one short week has left her with the warmest of memories.

Swimming in the indoor pool and baking with our attentive staff were some of Angie’s holiday highlights.
