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.
In August the Young Carers team took a group of 40 Young Carers to Alton Towers for a few days! Find out what they got up too...
During Carers Week we organised a young carers consultation event, to help raise the profile of Young Carers and what support services they need.
We are looking to gather a highly motivated bank of Tutors in all areas of the Curriculum to work on a 1-1 basis with young people for a time-limited period.
