This week our guests are Sam and Cameron, 2 of our young carers, and Amrit, our Young Carer Service Coordinator, and we are chatting about online games and how they can help in the current lock down situation. There are also some suggestions of games that you might like to play, and there is more information about these in the show notes.

This episode is about one aspect of Carers Link’s work – our groups, and is the first of our podcasts to include the voices of carers. It was recorded in two parts – before and during lockdown, and talks about why we run the groups and how we are continuing to provide that support.

This week we preview our digital version of What’s On with our guest contributor Heather talking about how we are still supporting carers in this changed world.

In this episode we discuss the OPAL information line, and particularly how it can help people who are shielding or self-isolating during the COVID-19 pandemic.
