Craven young carers had fun with ‘veggie sculptures’ at youth club last night. As it is Carers’ Week we talked about what it’s like to be a young carer and some thoughts shared included – ‘It’s not always just the physical help, but it’s the emotional stress that can be the hardest’……’Being a young carer gives us more skills – like empathy, and being able to cope- and having a good sense of humour helps’. Young carers really are Awesome.
We would like to say a HUGE thank you to the staff and students of St Aidan’s school who raised £500 for Young Carers through a non uniform day.
We support around 30 young carers at St Aidans through one to one emotional support and respite opportunities. This fundraising wouldn’t have been possible without the enthusiasm of our young carers at the school who campaigned to make it happen. Thank you very much.
The important question is….What would you like the money to be spent on?! Let us know your ideas 🙂
