Feeling Good Week is an initiative developed by Hertfordshire County Council and the NHS, and takes place between 11th – 17th February 2019.

The aim of the Week is to encourage schools and the wider community to promote the emotional wellbeing of children and young people by raising awareness of mental health and showing where support can be accessed within the community.

To help young carers from across Hertfordshire to feel good about themselves and the amazing job they do on a daily basis the CCG, working with our Young Carers Service, have invited young and adult carers for a special Afternoon Tea on Thursday 14th February 2019.

It’s a time for everyone to relax and share their experiences of being a carer and the CCG hopes the event will help carers of all ages get an insight into the differences and shared experiences of everyone’s caring roles.

Laura Green, one of our Young Carers Service Team Leaders, says: “It can be difficult for carers to get the opportunity to meet and relax with other carers. We aim to find ways to bring carers together so they do not feel isolated. Having a mix of both adult and younger carers at the Afternoon Tea will be fantastic. The conversations should be really interesting, and everyone involved is really looking forward to the afternoon.”
