Young carers summer news 2022

The Young Carer Team have been busy as ever over the last few months, seeking feedback from young carers about activities, doing lots of planning and trying out new things!

Our team (Amy/Chris/Leah) and our fantastic volunteers are all set for another action-packed summer. We’re planning lots of exciting activities for young carers, including crafts, cooking, and sports. The team will be in touch with parents soon, with full details for the summer activities programme.

We injected some creativity into our work within schools, with a new class presentation and short film to raise awareness of young carers in schools. The film was made by young carers themselves, along with artist Dan Stapylton and can be seen on the York Carers Centre You Tube channel.

The young carers service has also been involved in a citywide programme called ‘Realising Rights’ which aims to put Children’s Human Rights at the centre of how services are run.

Watch this space for updates!

Lastly we say goodbye to our wonderful Young Carer Support Worker Diane Lambert, who is moving on to a new role soon.
