A GROUP of 10 young carers saw their efforts rewarded at the Meadowbank Inn where they were presented with certificates for gaining Dynamic Youth Awards and Youth Achievement Awards.
The young carers, all aged between 11 and 15, have attended Carewise’, a training course for young carers developed by Angus Carers Centre staff to enhance the lives of young carers by providing appropriate information and support.
The youngsters achieved their Dynamic Youth Award gave up three days of their holidays in April to attend the course, during which they were able to share experiences, explore their feelings and learn strategies for coping with difficult times.
By reaching the targets they set for themselves, the group was able to successfully complete the Carewise course as well as achieving their Dynamic Youth Awards.
The awards were presented at a ceremony on Monday by Andrea Brymer of STV.
