Delivering amazon vouchers to young carers during the coronavirus pandemic

Posted by / Thursday 16 July 2020 / Young Carers

Our Pembrokeshire Young Carers service has been delivering £15 Amazon vouchers to local young carers, who have been under even more pressure during the coronavirus pandemic.

“It has been a very challenging time for young carers who are already under great pressure. As a service we were determined not to be blown off course by the coronavirus crisis and carry on delivering support whatever the virus threw at us and this gesture from Pembrokeshire County Council has been warmly received by all our young carers.” - Vikki Phillips; family support practitioner for Pembrokeshire Young Carers.

The vouchers could help them buy additional phone data cards, arts and craft supplies, wellbeing supplies, music or books.

Our Pembrokeshire Young Carers service supports children and young people who look after or help to look after someone in their family who is unwell or disabled. We provide personal support, advice and guidance.
