Two online creative workshops took place after school in May 2021 enabling the children to share stories, draw, colour and have fun! Twelve places were available and eleven young carers joined from across WY&H from six to fourteen years old and included both boys and girls. The children were sent an art pack containing pens, pencils and paper with a brief welcoming them to the workshop and an introduction.
Engagement with West Yorkshire and Harrogate (WY&H) young carers identified there was a need to develop resources to support their health and well-being. WY&H worked in partnership with Verd de Gres creative arts company from Hedben Bridge to plan a new online cookery resource. Verd de gres noted there were already a myriad of cookery books and this resource would be a bespoke resource designed by young carers for young carers based on their own experiences of food and being a young carer.
