Welcome to Carefree

Carefree is an independent Cornish Charity set up in 2005 by a group of six young people and a youth worker


We work with young people in and leaving care between 11 & 25 years old and sometimes with young people on the edge of care


We cover the whole of Cornwall and currently work with 100+ young people; our office is in Redruth but we run activities in venues across the whole county ~ we will do our best to get young people to us if we can’t get to them 


We offer positive activities, events and projects that help young people develop their social and emotional skills so that they have a better chance of growing up into positive healthy citizens 


We encourage young people to work with others and we try to role model this ourselves by working in partnership with other agencies and organisations, for example we are a member of Cornwall Youth Work Partnership and we work very closely with Cornwall Council, particularly the social work and education departments


Carefree has won another award
