Today (30 January) marks Young Carers Awareness Day, and there’s lots you can do and share to get involved in supporting the one in five young people with caring responsibilities in the UK.
In Coventry alone there is an estimated 5000 young carers and young people up to age of 25 caring for a parent, grandparent, sibling or a close friend.
The Carers Trust are one of the leading charities that provide support, training and awareness raising for young carers. Find out more on their website.
Follow #YoungCarersAwarenessDay on social media to find more information, including case studies and support.
Share your own messages of support and some of the key facts about young carers to help raise awareness of the often-unseen work that they do.
