Former Mayor’s fund helping Brent young carers

12 April 2017

 

A £9,359.00 donation to the Brent Carers Centre from former Mayor of Brent, Cllr Lesley Jones MBE, is making a difference to the lives of young carers within Brent.

 

The fund has been used to provide grants to 18 young carers who are in vulnerable situations, giving them new educational, social and employment opportunities. The money has also enabled the centre to provide trips and activities for young carers to help them develop new skills, as well as giving them a vital break from the day to day stress of caring.
