Youth Group goes virtual in lockdown

Tuesday 09 February 2021

A young carers youth group has started meeting online while in lockdown to check in and support each other.

The online event has been organised by the Youth Commission, and allows young people who live with a family member with an illness, disability or mental health diagnosis, a space to find support.

The session made use of virtual games to see how everybody was doing through their second lockdown.

“I know how much everyone values their time at the youth group,” said Senior Youth Worker, Tracy Spearing.

“I wanted to make sure we were still connected in lockdown. The young carers were all really keen to get involved and had lots of fun on our first session.”

The group will be meeting virtually until the end of lockdown. More information on the support young people can access during lockdown can be found online.

“I loved it,” said one young carer, “it was really good fun playing games.”
