One of our very talented Young Carers is a dab hand at photography. We thought it only right to share some of his great work on our website and to let him know that we think he is awesomely talented.

The Young Carers and Families Team have been spreading the word in the local Community about Young Carers and our project, we have visited Horizons (drug and alcohol service), Harrogate Police Station and local schools to talk to them about how to identify Young Carers, how to refer them and what we offer as a service.

Young Carer Awareness Day was Awesome

QT

To celebrate Young Carer Awareness day on the 28th January, we hosted a ‘Question Time’ event at our Youth club in Harrogate. We invited professionals from different areas of expertise, from Careers advisers to a local Councillor’ we had it covered. Our Young Carers had the chance to ask those pressing questions that were on their minds. It was a great event and Thank you to all who attended it was Awesome!!

Our relaxation boxes are awesome

The Young Carers and Families team have been very busy making relaxation and revision boxes for all of our Young Carers who would benefit from one. They include stress balls, colouring books, note pads, something cuddley, fidget toys, story books, revision tips, post-it notes, highlighters etc. We are proud of them and think they will benefit many of our Young Carers.
