Last night the BBC shone a light into the reality of being a young carer. This is the story of how the dynamics of a family completely changed after Charlotte had both her legs and hands amputated as a result of pneumococcal sepsis.
“Katie [Charlotte's 11-year-old daughter] has become my young carer, who saved my life. I wouldn't know what to do without her. If it wasn't for her, I don't think I'd be here today"
We are delighted to announce that Young Carers have been awarded a grant from The Crerar Trust. This funding will prove invaluable in helping us to plan a fun, action packed respite programme for all.
This year for the October Holidays we decided to do something a little different and organised two overnight residentials up in the beautiful village of Kinloch Rannoch.
This year the Young Carers team have organized a jam-packed Christmas Extravaganza on the 15th December, 11am to 3pm at The Gateway in Perth.
