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:
Chantelle Parke, a youth worker at Chilypep, has supported our project. She's worked closely with us throughout our Fix.
The team at the college have supported our project. They allowed us to shoot scenes for our Fixers film there. Thank you to Yasser Bouarfa, who is also part of the group and played a part in the project.
