Kinship carers, Geraldine, Lorna, Jacinta and Hazel were crowned ‘Carer of the
Year’ at the 2016 Derry Journal People of the Year Awards. Carers were absolutely delighted at receiving their award and spoke courageously about their experiences bringing up their relative’s children.
Thank you to the Derry Journal for a great evening and congratulations to our carers who made us feel extremely proud.
