Successful Young Carers Easter Holiday Programme

3rd May 2016

PKAVS Young Carers have provided another jam-packed fun-filled Easter Holiday programme for young carers across Perth and Kinross.

This included 9 young carers aged between 12-15 years enjoying a residential to Outward Bound which involved camping, canoeing, rock climbing and much more!

We also took 12 young carers aged between 7-9 years to enjoy a residential to Hopscotch - they had a great week doing walking, horse riding, playing at the beach, speed boats at Glencoe and a Gondola at the Ben Nevis range. 

In addition to the two residentials they held a sports day event at Bells Sports Centre, and a day out to M & D's theme park.

Overall 72 young carers enjoyed either a trip or residential throughout the Easter holidays allowing them to have time away from their caring role, spend time with friends and be children first and carers second.
