Awards for young carers

FOURTEEN young carers had their efforts rewarded when they were presented with certificates by Graeme Dey MSP at Seaton Estate on Monday evening after achieving Dynamic Youth Awards.

The carers, all aged between 11 and 15, have engaged in a variety of activities, setting themselves personal targets to achieve. Many of them had attended residential breaks away from home, while others had been involved in training courses and fund-raising groups.

In addition, Lorna Marsden, a volunteer with the centre who works with the young carers was presented with a Saltire Award for completing 200 hours of volunteering. The awards were presented by Graeme Dey MSP.
