Presentation by Steve Newman of BANES' Carers' Centre

On 10 June Steve Newman, Young Carers' Officer with BANES' Carers' Centre came to The Wheels Project to deliver a presentation about his organisation to a group of students who had been referred onto a Wheels' course through BANES' Youth Service and the Connecting Families Group. He successfully engaged the students with his enthusiasm about his work - himself being an ex young carer.  He highlighted the need his organisation has for a minibus with wheelchair access.

BANES' Carers' Centre has made a significant financial contribution towards the initial purchase of a vehicle and our students were unanimous in confirming they wished to support them by preparing and gifting a suitable minibus. This was particularly apt as one of the students is currently a young carer herself.
