Check out this snap shot of a 'Day in the life of a carer'
Our amazing Ms Frost (PSA) is in the process of working towards the Bronze Young Carers Award and has also been selected by Plymouth City Councils Young Carers Champion, to be part of an Educational Support Team (EST). This is a new venture that is being developed with the view to roll out to the whole of Plymouth in May 2020. This new role will entail Ms Frost being the first port of call for other Primary Schools throughout Plymouth when they need advice about how to support Young Carers within their schools, so that others can access the same level of support that we have developed.
Ms Frost is taking some of our Laira Green Young Carers to the Young Carers Awareness Day at Plymouth Citybus Depot on Thursday 30th January. On the day they will get the opportunity to meet other Young Carers from around Plymouth and learn all about how Citybus operate on a daily basis.
Some of the ways we promote our Young Carers
We are looking forward to our annual young carers day out. This will take place on Tuesday 18th June2019. We will be having an open top bus tour around Plymouth followed by a picnic and ice-cream on Hoe. Please check back for photos!!
In April 2 of our amazing young carers, joined other young carers from across the city to take part in activities at Hands2gether. They had the opportunity to make a personalised mug, using traditional methods from baking to glazing them.
On Thursday 14th June we went to Saltram with Young Carers from other schools. The activity for the day was to design and paint pebbles, then to hide them around Saltram ready for members of the public to find. We are hoping that people will remove them from Saltram and hide them somewhere else, maybe in another part of the country!!!
After we had finished this we had our lunch and then walked around looking for places to put our pebbles, lots of places were found, some of them were very random….these pebbles are still probably waiting to be found!!!
A short time in the park and an ice-cream finished off a fantastic day.
