Young Carers' Conference

On 21st March 2014 a group of young carers: Ross, Becky, Caitlin, Laura, Brad, Caitlynne, Hannah and Jordan, put on a conference for professionals in order to raise awareness of young carers needs and how to identify them. It was a very powerful and moving conference and the young people involved did a great job of telling their stories - to view a drama piece from the conference click here.
