Family Day 2016

2 August 2016

Our family fun day this year was on Tuesday 19th July and it was a fantastic day. The weather was glorious and we had 122 people attending on the day.

Thank you to Edinburgh Leisure for the swimming and soft play in the morning at Royal Commonwealth Pool, also thank you to Lush Spa Edinburgh for their wonderful bath bomb making, smoothie bike, nails and massage. Everyone enjoyed a great afternoon in the Scottish Widowsgarden with their wonderful staff team, even more games from Edinburgh Leisure, cake decorating with Cake4Kids, Puffin the Balloon Man, reiki and an absolutely amazing BBQ.

Some of the parents said ‘ it was great getting together, nice seeing the kids with their friends and to meet the staff’ and ‘such a lovely day, would be lost without young carer support’.

Young carers told us; ‘I like that I can bring my family to share where I go and how much fun it is’ and ‘I really enjoyed the day with my mum’

Winter Warmers 2015 Appeal

22 October 2015


We are looking at providing winter clothing, food and Christmas gifts over the festive period again this year

And your support would be greatly appreciated.

1-3 young carers are living in poverty at the moment. We are asking you to buy an extra gift this year that

we can give to a disadvantaged young carer. As young carers don’t often put themselves first, this is a great way to show appreciation for all the hard work they do throughout the year.

We have set up a just give page specially for this cause, which we would be extremely grateful if you could distribute.
