We are very happy to announce that we have started two workshops this January! An eight-week Peer Counselling training for Young Carers, in Eastleigh. The workshop is attended by ten lively young people between 12 and 17 years old. We will be posting news about it soon!
The second workshop on Counselling Skills for those working with young people is with the amazing workers of Young Carers.
The Young Carers project support young people whose lives are significantly affected by caring for a family member who has an illness, disability, mental health problem or substance misuse.
We feel it is a privilege working with this charity, and we are very much learning from everybody involved . Both the staff and the young carers are working on the service of others, and they do it with love and dedication.
If you want to learn more about what they do, and would like to support their charity, visit their website here.
And to learn more about the reality of the life of a Young Carer, please take a look at this Guardian article here.
We hope to continue our collaboration with Young Carers; we only just started!
