Tuesday 16th March 2021 is Young Carers Action Day and we are asking people to take action for young carers no matter how small and emphasise that we all have a responsibility to support them. This year it includes Young Adult Carers. You can post your pledge to the Carers Hub pledge wall: https://carershub.co.uk/make-a-pledge/
Simple actions include signing this petition asking Gavin Williamson to make it law that every school has Young Carers support as a clear named role which doesn’t rely just on the goodwill of one member of staff who takes an interest. This is especially important since Ofsted removed young carers as a named group on inspection frameworks. This petition was put together by Young Carers National Voice, a national group of young carers working together on campaigning.

Finally, one of our amazing young carers was interviewed on BBC Radio Sussex on Saturday alongside the CEO of Carers Trust. You can listen here Breakfast on BBC Radio Sussex – Danny Pike 13/03/2021 – BBC Sounds from 1hr 13 onwards.
Thank you so much for your support!
