PKAVS Young Carers have provided another jam-packed fun-filled Easter Holiday programme for young carers across Perth and Kinross.
This included 9 young carers aged between 12-15 years enjoying a residential to Outward Bound which involved camping, canoeing, rock climbing and much more!
We also took 12 young carers aged between 7-9 years to enjoy a residential to Hopscotch - they had a great week doing walking, horse riding, playing at the beach, speed boats at Glencoe and a Gondola at the Ben Nevis range.
In addition to the two residentials they held a sports day event at Bells Sports Centre, and a day out to M & D's theme park.
Overall 72 young carers enjoyed either a trip or residential throughout the Easter holidays allowing them to have time away from their caring role, spend time with friends and be children first and carers second.
The Carers Trust have worked with the Scottish Government and with young carer services to develop a Carers (Scotland) Act 2016 Jargon Buster for Young Carers.
The Youth and Philanthropy Initiative (YPI) is an active citizenship programme that raises awareness amongst young people about philanthropy and their local community.
The Young Carers Team had a very busy Easter Holiday. Arranging different day trips from Crazy Golf to Trampolining with lots and lots of Easter Eggs in between!
