Eden Court Creative building skills and confidence

Over the next three years Connecting Young Carers will be working alongside Eden Court Creative supporting young carers to get involved in creative industries that build skills and confidence. In the past young carers have produced music videos, zombie films and documentaries.
In October two of our young carers, Grant and Tinisha worked alongside the creative team to write and record their own short film.
Keep an eye on our website and Facebook page for other opportunities throughout the year to get involved.
 

Incredible Edible

We were delighted to welcome 20 young carers aged 8 – 16 years old over two days to our Incredible Edible cooking workshop.
Young carers tell us how important it is for them to have skills that support them in their caring roles and the chance to eat lots of cake is a must!
Delicious recipes from chicken pie, sunshine burgers, apple crumple cupcakes and Halloween buns were all on the menu.
After all their hard work the young carers got to sit down and enjoy a three course lunch and take away a recipe guide from the day.
A huge thank you Strathpeffer Community Centre for running the cooking classes and looking after us so well.
