Young Carers Awareness Day

This year, Young Carers Awareness Day was held on the 30th January 2020 and it is important that we recognise that every day across the UK, thousands of young people help to look after someone in their family, or a friend, who is ill, disabled, or misuses drugs or alcohol. This responsibility can have a massive impact on the lives of young individuals and it is important that we identify and do all we can to help young carers and ensure they are receiving the support they need. An important cause and one I will continue to champion.
