Respite trips 2018

Easter Respites

Over Easter, lots of young carers took part in a respite break. Their chosen activities included swimming in Kyle followed by lovely lunch in Hector's Bothy or lunch at Aros followed by art workshop with Kate McMorrine (supported by the 'This is Good for You Project), or lunch at Hector's Bothy followed by a boat/fishing trip with Atlantis in Kyleakin,or a trip to Landmark in Carrbridge. A total of 46 young carers took part in the different activities. Many thanks indeed to everyone who supported the young carers, they thoroughly enjoyed their chosen breaks and we were so lucky with the April weather!

Summer Respites

 A group of 14 went swimming, had lunch and then lots of water fight games at Victoria Cottage - lot of soakings that day - especially the staff who were happily drenched! Another group of 13 young carers travelled to Craggan Outdoor Centre in Aviemore and thoroughly enjoyed kayaking, laser tag and high rope activities - started off wary but ending up justly proud with their personal achievements. A trip to Inveness for shopping and Go-Karting was another really enjoyable one for 15 young carers, some of the boys even managed to fit in a visit to the barbers! There was catching fish around Kyle and a trip to the Aros Centre as well as a fun afternoon of arts and crafts!
