Carers Week 2020 – Merri and Steff
Gofalwyr Ceredigion Carers 11 June 2020
For Carers Week 2020, Gofalwyr Ceredigion Carers have produced a special series of short audio programmes. Coronavirus lockdown measures have resulted in an array of challenges for carers. For this special series we have brought together carers from a variety of backgrounds whose conversations provide us a glimpse of their lives and responsibilities. The carers featured in this series have never met in person before.
Merri and Steff are young parent carers who both have sons with autism. Their Gofalwyr Ceredigion Carers outreach worker saw that they had a lot in common and asked if they would like to be put in touch with each other as part of our Carers Buddy Scheme. They agreed and have been keeping in touch on social media since the beginning of lockdown. Here they talk about the challenges, joys and uncertainties of life under lockdown.
