After finishing a busy day in the branch organising our schools, teachers and support staff, Ben Melling, our Senior Consultant in Chorley, then goes and dedicates his time in the evenings supporting the young carers within Blackburn with Darwen.
‘The aim of the support is to let our young carers be ‘children’ just for a few hours and for them to have some time for themselves with their peers. It is such a rewarding role working with a group of such dedicated and inspiring young adults. says Ben.
On Wednesday 20th November 2013 Child Action North West are launching ‘Young Carers Memorandum of Understanding’.
The aim of the event is to raise awareness of the ‘Memorandum of Understanding’ and to raise awareness of the issues that young carers face.
This ‘not to be missed’ event will include:
- The official launch of the Memorandum of Understanding
- Information about being a young carer and the opportunity to have Q and A with the young carers themselves.
- A fantastic performance from the young carers.
- Pie and peas supper
Please come along and give your support to a very special group of young carers.
