Sheffield United Youngsters Show Caring Side

Sheffield United’s youth-team players recently welcomed the Sheffield Young Carers Project through the doors at Shirecliffe.

The charity which was founded in 1997 and whose funding partners include the NHS and Sheffield City Council visited the Blades Academy to speak to club’s Under 18 players about the work they do and to set-up a lasting partnership between the organisations.

Katie Borland, the charity’s Fundraising Officer, gave a presentation on the work they do and how they would like apprentices to become involved. She was joined by one the projects young carers who talked about her personal journey as a carer and the support the project had offered her.

That help includes one to one support, group activities, respite holidays and support with education, employment and training and Borland is keen to get the Blades youngsters involved in the future.

“It was great to meet the lads and we are looking forward to developing the link with the Academy and moving things on,” Borland said.

A question and answer session rounded off the day and Academy Manager Nick Cox added; “This work will be a valuable addition to the life skills programme for our apprentices.”
