Young Carers

During our December 12th meet we enjoyed a very inspiring talk by Tracey Daniels who works for Reading Borough Council in charge of Young Carers Assessment. Tracey also runs a Young Carers' Project for young people aged between 5 and 19 who are defined as 'carers'. Tracey explained how they define a young carer.:
'A child or young person who cares for a relative and carries out an inappropriate level of duties around the home or provides emotional or physical support to their parents or siblings.'
This means that the young carer might help around the house doing the cleaning, making the beds or making the dinner. They might help get their younger siblings to and from school or do their homework. Perhaps they are responsible for helping their disabled relative get around, so they might help lift them in and out of the bath or on and off the toilet. Or they might support their relative after they have been drinking, or when their mood is low. Each young carer is unique, and their responsibilities differ.

The Reading Santa Run 2017 was a great success! Despite the drizzle and cold the participants were in great spirits and all seem to thoroughly enjoy the event.

Once the 5km runners had been 'warmed up' by an instructor from Buzz Gym, one of the main sponsors of the race, The Mayor of Reading Rose Williams started the race of Santa's at 9.30.
