Young Carers Week at Hayshead Primary

Monday 21st November 2011

The Young Carers Workers have had a busy week, raising awareness of Young Carers at Hayshead Primary School in Arbroath.  After a presentation to the whole school on 11 November, the staff (along with Eryc and Trayc) spent time the following week with all of the Primary 5, 6 and 7 pupils, giving them a valuable insight into life as a young carer.  All those who participated were then given goodie bags with loads of information about young carers and Angus Carers Centre to take home.  The highlight of the week was a fun-filled activity at lunchtime on Thursday with young carers, and others with an interest in young carers, coming along to play games, have fun and meet new people.  The week has been regarded as a huge success, with a number of young carers being identified for the first time.  It is hoped that it can be repeated in other primary schools in Angus very soon.
