Campaign: To show what it means to be a young carer

I am a young carer.

While looking after a loved one does have its rewards, it can be difficult to juggle other aspects of life – including school.


My team and I all have experience of this and we’re working on a Fixers campaign to raise awareness of the role that young carers play.


We hope it will help people understand some of the challenges we face, while showing others in our situation that they’re not alone.

Here is a list of Fixers helping me with this Fix:
