As well as attending one of our fortnightly groups the twins have accessed additional support such as:
An Art Mindfulness session
Challenge for Change
Residential Weekend at Colomendy
Mental Wellbeing Workshop
Niamh and Faith, 15-year-old twin sisters, care for their mum who has multiple medical conditions and needs support to complete day to day activities.
They joined the Wigan & Leigh Young Carers group in 2018 and access regular support through this, including a teen group in Leigh where they have met lots of new friends. It’s also allowed them to go on trips to North Wales and many other places.
Wigan & Leigh Young Carers is a registered charity supporting young carers aged 5-24. For more information visit www.walyc.org.uk, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01942 679352.
