A day to celebrate young carers
Some children and young people play a significant role supporting a family-member with a disability or who suffer from long-term or severe health problems. This might be with washing, helping the person to move about, or cooking, shopping and filling their paperwork. Children and young people in this position are young carers.
On January 31st, we recognise Young Carers Awareness Day, giving us a chance to celebrate the hard work that children and young people do to support their loved ones. As part of this, DreamArts Carers Express is holding a special fun day for all young carers living in Westminster. This will include meeting up for a pizza and a trip to the cinema. It's a chance to take some time for yourself and recognise the awesome job you do.
If you would like to join the event, or find out more, you can email Gaynor on email@example.com
As a young carer, you are also able to get extra support from the council to help you through those stressful moments. Read more about what's available by clicking here.
