A theatre based project is touring Norfolk and Suffolk in the Spring of 2016 to help and support young carers.

With an estimated 700,000 young people with caring responsibilities in the UK, Freefall aims to build awareness and develop an understanding within the one hour workshop.

A collaboration with Unit Twenty Three, based in Vince’s Road, and The Norfolk Young Carers Forum, Freefall combines the importance of developing skills with art and drama to produce unique and effective training for young carers.

Director Stuart Mullins said: “Theatre can be an effective medium with the ability to affect and move in a way that other approaches may not.

“Freefall is determined to celebrate the heroism of these extraordinary young people, a secret army who the state chooses to ignore.”
