Disadvantaged young people in Great Yarmouth are being given the opportunity to experience travel and adventure with a free short break thanks to youth charity YHA (England and Wales).

As part of the charity’s new Challenging Lives breaks programme, a two-night stay at one of the charity’s youth hostels in England and Wales is being offered.

The Challenging Lives programme aims to give children living difficult lives the adventure of a lifetime, from searching for dinosaur fossils or trying a spot of weaselling to canoeing down a river.

The programme is aimed at eight to 18-year-olds who have recently experienced life-threatening medical or mental health conditions, bereavement or homelessness and young people living with a disability or medical condition, or those taking on a caring role.

Applications are until June 1 for groups of up to 12 young people. To apply visit www.yha.org.uk/apply-support
