New young carers group

A NEW young carers group is being set up in Shetland to provide mutual support for people looking after family members who may be suffering from ill health, a disability, mental health problems, drug or alcohol dependency.

The new group is designed to help young carers meet up and chat, help design a website, take part in art projects, join trips or just hang out and get a break from caring.

The group’s first meeting will be held at 2pm til 4pm on 27 November at the Bruce Family Centre, Lovers Loan, Lerwick.

Anyone wanting to find out more can contact Voluntary Action Shetland support worker Jo Jack on 01595 743923.
