Angus Young Carers are currently supporting forty young carers in our local area aged from nine to fifteen years old.
Life for young carers can be extremely stressful at times, and even more so during this pandemic, so we can only begin to imagine the impact of having to deal with everything right now.
Angus Young Carers usually provide respite groups during the summer holidays, but as they are unable to do that this year they've been working hard to create activity packs for the young carers to do at home. One of these is a knitting pack which will teach the youngsters how to knit a square. Eventually these will all be joined together to make a blanket.
They asked Asda Forfar if we could donate some wee treats to add in with the activity packs and we were delighted to do this.
We all want to say a huge well done to all the young carers our there. You’re our heroes!
