Additional Information

Additional Information

In line with ongoing government COVID-19 guidance, the Young Carers Project is currently running virtual support sessions through Zoom in place of the weekly respite sessions at Limehouse Youth Centre. We have plans to begin resuming some of our face-to-face activity with young people in May and June 2021 and will do this in managed bubbles. We will then seek to have a blended face-to-face and virtual offer for young carers to ensure those who feel less able to participate in face-to-face activities can still enjoy some respite. To find out more please contact us on young.carers@towerhamlets.gov.uk.
