Are you a young carer in Burnley, Pendle or Rossendale?
Burnley, Pendle and Rossendale Council for Voluntary Service offer a variety of services to young carers.
These include one-to-one sessions where a carer can get information about the illness of the person they are looking after and an individual action for their own needs. This may involve them developing confidence skills, finding strategies to feel less isolated or managing the care-school balance better.
Young carers also offer day trips and residential trips from time to time.
A cheese and wine evening will be held on 15 September to raise funds for that support. Tickets cost £15 per head and the evening will be held at Booth’s supermarket and is open to people aged 18 and over.
Tickets for the cheese and wine night can be purchased from Young Carers at the CVS Centre, 62-64 Yorkshire Street, Burnley or by contacting Justine Duffy on 01282 433740 Ext. 1033 or emailing Justine.Duffy@bprcvs.co.uk.
