Rotary Team Leader Bozena delivers 1,000 Type II Face masks to Debbie from North Lincolnshire Council for Young Carers

Being a carer at any time is challenging but no more so in theses pandemic times .... being a young carer is stressful enough on a day to day basis  but with no schooling , not  being able to see friends,  having  no opportunities to go out  is  even  more stressful ......

Brigg Rotary has  over the past 2 years linking in with North Lincolnshire Council Young Carers Team  supporting them in terms of funding activities in order  for the young carers to have some ' me time ' - away from their daily  caring responsibilities for a short period of time . 

Now the lockdown has been eased it is an opportunity  for these young carers to  meet friends , go out to parks/ have picnics , go for walks   ...

The 1000 face masks  delivered will  enables the Team to plan outings together with  all the young carers ....giving them choices as to where they want to go safely  whilst  wearing face masks in line with government guidelines .....    

Brigg Rotary will continue to support these Young Carers .......
