Honeypot is a children's charity that supports young carers aged 5 to 12 years.

It offers respite breaks and outreach support to young carers and other vulnerable children. 

Respite breaks currently take place at Honeypot House in the New Forest for weekends of fun activities away from their caring responsibilities.

Outreach support is provided on the Honeypot playbus with fun activities such as art and crafts, interactive games, dancing, reading, messy play and sensory toys.

Another centre is due to open in Powys, Wales in the summer offering respite breaks and outreach services to young carers and vulnerable children from all over Wales, the North West of England and the Midlands.

Children must be referred by a child care professional such as a headteacher, doctor or social worker.
