Young Carers Action Day 2021

It’s nearly here.
 
Young Carers Action Day this year takes place on 16th March and the theme is Protecting Young Carers’ Futures.
 
Carers Trust have had some great conversations with young/young adult carers. They told them they wanted the day to be about their futures, highlighting the incredible skills they have developed through being a carer – like resilience, time-management and empathy.
 
These are all important skills, not just for young people moving into higher education – but also for those looking to enter the workplace. What’s more, they are skills highly sought after by employers.
 
We have a full day of activities planned around the theme – all about the incredible work our young carers do every day.
 
We are looking for young carers/young adult carers to be filmed for a short interview to talk about their life as a young carer – if this is you (or your young carer) please get in touch with Sarah on 01429 283095 or email sarah.rowntree@hartlepoolcarers.org.uk.
 
Don’t fancy being on screen? We have attached a ‘Skill Card’ we would love you to fill in. You can send us a photo of us with your card or put it on social media (with your grown up’s permission) using the hashtag #YoungCarersActionDay. Don’t worry if you don’t have access to a printer either – you can draw your own!
 
We would love our young carers to get involved in the day and the build up so we can show everyone just how amazing you are!
