POD Zone


The Zone Young Carers group meets in term time on a Wednesday evening from 6-8pm once a fortnight.

The group meets at Roots YMCA, Palmer St, Frome, BA11 1DS.

Young People who attend are aged 8-16 years however existing members are welcome to stay until they turn 18 years old.  Most, but not all of the Young Carers have a disabled brother or sister – they really do benefit from spending time with peers who have an understanding of the differences in their home lives.

Activities led by the Young People; almost always include some form of cooking which can involve a lot of mess and competition! Other activities have included gaming on the Wii, pamper sessions and sports.  As with our other clubs, the program is planned with the Young People but they do not have to take part in anything they would prefer not to.

We ask for a contribution of £3 to attend the club, if financial support is needed please do not hesitate in talking to us.

Members are asked to bring an extra £1 to buy a drink and snacks from the Tuck shop at half time.

We welcome referrals from Parent Carers and Professionals i.e. PFSA’s schools, colleges or health and social care.  Please use the contact us page and we will be happy to respond to your inquiry.
