Young Carers Drama Group


Top billing for Drama Workshop!

A recent drama workshop highlighting the everyday lives and the concerns of Young Carers was well received by an audience of students from Tibshelf School, near Alfreton.
The workshop expertly delivered by Ava Hunt and her colleagues struck a dramatic chord with students – who identified and related to the unfolding presentation and inter-actional activities of the session.
DCA’s Young Carers Project Leader, Debra Dudley, was impressed with the performance given by the professional actors and particularly how the students freely involved themselves within the production.

Debra stated: ‘This was a moving performance highlighting a typical Young Carers life. As the leading Carers organisation in Derbyshire, we are determined to drive this initiative to identify and support the hidden Young Carers of the county.’
‘Our sincere thanks Ava and her very talented team, to Sue Allen Head of PSHE and to the staff and students at Tibshelf School for their expert help and support with this project.’
