Action With Young Carers Wirral, June 2019
Paula Hume from Barnardo’s came to the Club’s June dinner meeting to speak about the work supporting young carers in Wirral, one of the Presidents’ charities this year. Action With Young Carers Wirral works with young carers who are caring for a family member who has a physical illness/disability, mental ill health, sensory disability or has problematic use of drugs or alcohol. Paula explained that the Project works within a whole family approach to reduce the negative impact of caring by accessing support for the young carer and family members where there is an identified need.
