Connecting young carers at The Plough

Young carers connecting at The Plough

Young carers from YCC connected with young carers from Devon Young Carers, on Friday 25th February, at the Plough Arts Centre in Torrington, and what a lovely time we all had.

Two fantastic workshops were on offer - banner making using a variety of mediums to get our Carer's message across to others and a performance art workshop where we could explore and express our emotions in a safe environment.

We were thoroughly spoilt with a feast of sandwiches, cakes, biscuits, fresh fruit, and any hot or cold drinks we wanted.

At the end of the day we all agreed that today gave us a valuable opportunity to share our experiences with young carers of all ages, from 8 - 25, learning from, and supporting each other, as young carers often do.

Plans are in the pipeline for more workshops and a big family celebration - watch this space.

A MASSIVE THANK YOU to T100 and the Plough Arts Centre. You're amazing!
