09 Jun Young Carers Forum
Last week saw the first meeting of our brand new Young Carers Forum.
Young carers aged 11 and up from across the county are welcome to join the Forum, which will meet once every half term, before club. The Forum is a way for our Young Carers to make sure their opinions are heard. They can discuss anything and everything from what sort of trips and club activities they’d like to what help is available to them with regards to further education or their own health and well-being. It’s all down to them, it’s their Forum, I’m just there to take notes and serve pizza!
One of the first actions to come out of the Forum meeting was to set up an online forum as the group felt this would be the most efficient way to keep in touch between meetings. The group also agreed that this should be a closed Facebook group and that any young carer from Herefordshire can join, as long as they are aged 13 or above as per Facebook rules. So, if you are a young carer, or you know someone who is, and you think they’d like to join in then just contact us in the usual way.
