Events & Activities
At Connecting Young Carers we want young carers across Highland to get involved in our events, activities and learning opportunities. We understand it’s important that young carers feel confident in their caring roles, have the opportunity to develop life skills and reach their full potential.
We support young carers to learn and socialise in a fun, safe and friendly environment with other young carers who understand their daily pressures.
Events can range from awareness days, outdoor activities, skills based workshops, overnight residential’s and fun days out. Many events and activities are planned and designed around what young carers tell us would help them develop their confidence and learning, enabling them to better cope with their caring role. All young carer events are free.
Young carer events help to build new friendships, develop coping skills and allow young carers to feel rested and relaxed. Young carers tell us they enjoy being with other young people in similar caring roles, knowing they’re not alone and their voices are heard.
