Note to all young carers and their families from Louise Hart

Remember this is a time where everyone is coming together to help fight against one thing (Covid19) to help keep you and every one in our country as safe as they can. No one has all the answers but everyone has a responsibility to do what they can with the right intentions.

Be kind to yourself and others.

Stay indoors, follow the guidance given and make sure you are still being safe with the internet, plus use help from valid sources you know, trust or are regulated.

While you are safe from the symptoms of Covid19 why not take the time to find out what you like and get involved with trying something new. There are lots of fun ideas from Yoga, reading, challenges, art, gaming, music, singing and quizzes.

This is a moment in our history that will be remembered by all and what you chose to do in this time should be documented.

  • Something I found on line that would be nice to do is a time capsule. Here are some worksheets to download, print or take ideas from
  • Another idea is to write the things you are missing from your life before Covid19 and put them in a box/jar/pot to look at when this is all over. You can also put in all the things you wish you could do if you were not inside and what you would like to do in the future when we can start exploring the world again and make a difference.

Creating a story, poem or journal writing about your experience will be great too.

Stay safe and keep connected.
