Young Carers Project – Welcome Lauren

Welcome to Lauren Oliver newly appointed Young Carers Support Worker. Lauren is well known to our Young Carers groups as a volunteer who has supported our work at Catholic Care for the last eighteen months. Due to Covid-19 we have had to pause our large group work programme, however the support for our young people continues. We have introduced an in school mentoring support service where our workers can support children on a one to one basis or in small bubbles or sibling groups. Lauren has the newly purchased COVID safe activity packs at the ready here in the photo! So that children can carry on enjoying creative activities with their own packs. Huge thanks to the Sisters of Mersey for funding our activity packs and social activities for the half term holidays.
