At our Maldon Young Carers Club, Adam Smith from the charity ARTS – Achieving Recovery Through Sports – came in to do a little workshop with our Young Carers.

ARTS is an organisation which has been set up to help support families and individuals suffering from the effects of addiction. Adam believes that promotion and participation in sport can help achieve addition recovery. This not only helps keep a healthy body but can help keep individuals in good mental health which is equally as important. 

They discussed feelings and the importance of telling someone when you are struggling, and did some preventative work around addiction.
