Scarborough and Ryedale Carers Resource recently took a group of carers on a visit to Beacon Alpacas where they got to learn everything about the animals.
The trip gave them some much-needed respite from their caring role.
The day also gave the carers the opportunity to build their confidence, self-esteem and make new friends.
Dawn Brookes, project lead, said: “This is one of a range of activities we can offer, that increases health and wellbeing in participants.
“We support adult carers in a number of ways, including, providing information and advice for their caring role, and providing a bespoke plan to help carers break down the barriers they have, to help them achieve their goals and aspirations with a view to returning to employment and becoming financially independent.”
The carers resource is part of Action Towards Inclusion as Keyworker partners in a £7.4m project that is funded by the Big Lottery and European Social Fund as part of the Building Better Opportunities initiative.
