Virtual Book Club

Introducing…. NEW Young Carers Virtual Book Club

 

We’re really excited to launch our first Young Carers Book Club! In these strange times what better than to lose yourself in a different world/life/story?

Each month we will share our book pick with you… you can then email in your book reviews, telling us what you liked/what you didn’t like about the story.

We would also LOVE to be able to have a virtual meet-up for young carers (registered with us) who are interested in discussing the book with other people and ‘meet’ other young carers. If you are interested in joining a virtual meet up (via Zoom) please do let us know by emailing young.carers@Carersinherts.org.uk We can then send you the date of the e-meet up and you can book on.
