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!
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.
