During the April holidays, 9 young carers headed to Loch Eli to Outward Bound for a week of adventure.
They took part in an overnight expedition which involved canoeing for 4 hours then setting up a camp, cooking rations and sleeping out in tents. They also took part in abseiling, rock climbing and rock scrambling on Ben Nevis.
This residential gave young carers an opportunity to not only have a break from their caring orle, but to try new experiences and activities that they would not normally be able to do. They also got to make new friends and build self-esteem away from their caring role.
Two of our young carers were lucky enough to be offered scholarships from the Outward Bound Trust to return for an extended residential next summer. Everyone had a great time and have asked to go to Loch Eli again next year...watch this space!!
PKAVS Young Carers Service were delighted to receive a cheque from Elsie and Gus Cattanach this week.
C'Jai is a 15 year old Young Carer who we have supported over the last 2 years and this is her story.
