We’ve been supporting local initiative Positive Steps in multiple ways, but recently by donating a whopping 80 tablets to their young carers and young people. COVID has made access to education more difficult, conversations more distant and socialising with friends almost impossible. For many young carers, they rely heavily on face to face interactions with friends and support workers to help them to offload their responsibilities and have some fun.
Tablets bring us together in the virtual world, helping young carers to feel less isolated. Being able to get in touch with school, friends, support workers and other young careers is a vital resource that we’re really glad we are able to provide!
