Young Carer Support

Some of our amazing young people are also Young Carers. Mrs Ashton and Mrs Simpson run a support group for them. They regularly meet to have a chat, let off some steam and have some fun.

The most recent session was a cosy movie afternoon but this year we have also been to the Mart, had a crafts afternoon and had a visit from some therapy animals. The children really enjoyed getting to spend time relaxing and stroking the baby rabbits and guinea pigs.
