Today we celebrated the hard work and commitment of our Young Carers at CCYD by holding a Christmas coffee morning. Young Carers are children who care for a family member such as a parent or sibling.
In addition to attending full time education, these children also work hard at home. This can involve: cleaning, dressing, preparing food, doing the laundry and shopping. They often have no time for themselves and carry on every day regardless.
The children were treated to drinks, cakes and a Christmas selection box as they chatted amongst peers and engaged with the Mayor, Cllr Phil White, Cllr Dhanisha Patel, Lisa Pritchard from BCBC Young Carers and Rhian Bennett from ROOTs Bridgend.
