Carers in Herts will be running a 6 week ski course for young carers at the Snow Centre in Hemel Hempstead on Wednesday afternoons in the Summer Holidays. Please contact us on 01992 586969 or by email to email@example.com to express an interest. We will contact those who have expressed an interest in the next couple of weeks to allocate spaces. In the event that too many young carers apply we will prioritise those who will be able to attend the full 6 weeks and who have not done any skiing with us before.
We will also be running Lawn Bowls in Hertford for Young Carers on Thursday mornings. We trialled this in half term and young carers said they really enjoyed it and wished it could have been longer. It was particularly good for young carers who are a little bit more anxious or worried about meeting large groups of people. It will be a small group of 8 for the whole 6 weeks on Thursday mornings. Please express your interest by email or phone as above for the skiing.
