A big thank you to the Co-op Community Fund

Co-op thank you

Thanks to the generosity of the Co-op and its customers, we were delighted to pick up a cheque on Saturday for £2,068.  This money will go towards supporting our young carers across Torridge and North/Mid Devon.  

Young carers are young people caring for someone with an illness/disability, a mental health problem or substance/alcohol misuse issues. They have an increased likelihood of suffering social, emotional and mental/physical health problems.  Having this caring role can result in;

  1. a lack of self-worth, self-esteem and self-confidence;
  2. feelings of guilt and/or resentment;
  3. and loneliness/isolation from peers.

We support young carers to make connections, feel part of a community and to be inspired for the future.
