Young Carers Awareness Training – January 2018 – March 2018

We have developed a 2-hour multi-agency training programme delivered by Imago Young Carers on behalf of Kent County Council as part of its commitment to safeguard vulnerable children. The training session will focus on resilience, confidence building, improved wellbeing for young people and their families, and promoting the early intervention and prevention of inappropriate caring roles for young carers.   To see more information, dates and how to book please click here

Thanks to the Dartford Toy Appeal our Kent Young Carers service is one of the lucky 8 organisations to receive generously donated gifts this year.

Please see the poster for more details about drop-off points.

Thank you to all who donate and organise this collection.

Dartford Toy Appeal launched in 2014 as a small appeal to provide toys for children who had been affected by domestic abuse. Following a phenomenal response they have expanded the appeal every year - last year they collected over 1,000 brand new toys and gifts. Local people want to help others at Christmas, especially children, and this is a fantastic way to get involved. Run completely by volunteers in the community, 100% of donations go to charities. This year they are collecting for local charities working with children and local young people.

Please take a new toy or gift along to one of their drop off points between 15th November and 16th December.  They will also be happy to take wrapping paper, toiletries and new children’s books.
