YCR …and a Ball of String

YCR were in full effect this week with members coming together to talk about a number of opportunities that are on the horizon. The group members, aged between 9 and 21, met at Inspired Youth’s Offices at York St John Uni. There were four tasks to discuss.

  • Discuss and Plan a Regional Event with the Parliamentary Outreach Service
  • Contribute views to the City of York Health & Well Being Strategy
  • Discuss ways to influence the Vale of York Clinical Commissioning Group
  • Discuss the impact of the Carers Support Bill

The discussions covered a range of organisations that are involved in young carers lives. In order to fully understand the roles and responsibilities of these organisations we used a ball of string and told a story (based on real situations) that illustrated how all these organisations are linked whilst the young carer is in the middle. Each time an organisation had an influence in the story the ball of string was passed to them, quickly turning the room into a web! Being able to help these organisations do their job by discussing priorities for young carers was an important part of the session.
