FIFE YOUNG CARERS

Supporting and Encouraging our Young Carers in Fife

The project is a follow up to the Young Carer's Mosaic project which we facilitated last year when, at the evaluation session, one young person said " the mosaic has been good and has let us show the physical things we have to deal with day in day out....but it doesn't say anything about the emotional stuff."

 

This project involves the young people in exploring those emotional aspects, facilitated by local drama tutor Claire Bloomfield.  They are keen to share the results of their work with those who have some responsibility for supporting them in their caring role and we are working with them to create that opportunity.

 

These young people provide a very valuable service within the community taking on a caring role which changes the dynamic of their childhood years quite dramatically and our community  should be encouraging and supporting them.
