Supporting Young Carers

Over the years, Bridgend Soroptimists have supported Young Carers in Bridgend and was keen to renew the link and find out more. We welcomed Victoria Bailey of Young Carers as a speaker at our zoom meeting on 9th February.

Victoria outlined the work that the organisation does with young carers in the Bridgend area – explaining that many children from as young as 7 years of age find themselves having to care for siblings or parents whilst still going to school. The session generated a great deal of discussion about ways in which we could help and a small donation has kick-started our renewed contact.
