‘This year the theme is ‘Aspirations’!

 

We want to ensure that Young Carers have the same opportunities, experiences and aspirations as their friends and peers.

 

This short film was created by members of Young Carers Voice to highlight the barriers to young carers reaching their aspirations. We invite you to watch and share the film; especially on January 26th. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TlHpsYRhChA

 

The film has been partly funded by Carers Trust who will be working with the media to promote all the work being done by partners on the day; we would like to give as much recognition to professionals and services who support this National Awareness Day as possible.
