Back in May and June, we asked all our supporters to remember to use their blue tokens when they visited their local Tesco and vote for PKAVS Young Carers project.
Thanks to everyone's amazing support we received the most votes and were awarded a Bags of Help grant of £4,000! This funding will be used towards helping continue and grow our weekly respite groups for Young Carers.
Our groups provide vital respite for our young carers, it offers them time to focus on their own health and wellbeing and gives them a break from their caring role. The group activities allow them to access life opportunities that they may have otherwise been denied; it is also a great opportunity for them to develop their social skills and in particular, meet other people who are in similar situations to themselves and who experience comparable challenges in their daily lives.
Thank you once again for all your support!
The purpose of Young Carers Awareness Day is to raise public awareness of the challenges faced by young people because of their caring role.
The end of last year was a very busy time for our Young Carers as always! Read on to find out what they got up to!
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.
