early help

The Grantham Lions club have donated a laptop to the North & South Kesteven Early Help Team.

The request came in for a laptop to help support a young carer who has a role of care and emotional support for her younger brother with additional needs, and her mother who struggles with her mental health.

The Lions club are delighted to have been able to help in supplying a laptop so this young carer can continue with her education and achieve their goals.

The Laptop was kindly donated by Lion Phil Marshall and his company Fengrain Limited

The laptop was presented to Karen Brown an early help worker for North & South Kesteven early help team, Karen said: “I am delighted to receive the donation of a laptop for the Grantham Lions Club on behalf of a young carer I am working with.

“This will enable her to continue with studies towards A levels and enable her to balance her valuable caring role whilst continuing to remain in education.

“I would like to say a grateful thank you to the lions for their continued support for young carers in Grantham, Lincolnshire.

“The vision of Lincolnshire county council is that every young carer is recognised, valued and supported to have a good health and wellbeing, and achieve their full potential.”
