Edward Davey MP visits Kingston Young Carers

Kingston and Surbiton MP Edward Davey visited Kingston Young Carers on Friday 2nd November where they were putting on a sports day at Tiffin Girls School as a part of their half term activities programme.  Mr Davey met with Liz Grimwood who works for Young Carers, a member of the board of trustees and a number of Young Carers who are supported by the project.

Kingston Young Carers Project supports young people across Kingston Borough who care for a member of their family who suffers with illness, a physical disability, a learning difficulty, a sensory impairment or drug or alcohol problems.  More information about the Young Carers project, including how to get involved can be found at kingstoncarers.org.uk/young-carers/.

Mr Davey said “The work done by Young Carers not just in Kingston Borough but across the UK really does need acknowledging.  Kingston Young Carers does a fantastic job supporting families and Young Carers across the borough, I was delighted when they were selected as a Mayor’s charity and I hope they receive the support they deserve from this.”
