Update: Calderdale Council’s Young Carers Service

It’s been business as (the new) normal for Calderdale Council’s Young Carers Service, which says “it’s certainly been a challenge to adapt to supporting young carers virtually but it’s great to see their confidence within the groups grow each week.” They are offering weekly group activities over Zoom. The younger adult carers (aged 14-18) have been enjoying a weekly quiz and are working towards a ‘lockdown time capsule’ within the group. The young carers (aged 8-13) have been taking part in twice-weekly games such as ‘guess that sound’ and indoor scavenger hunts.
