I’ve been a young carer since my dad was involved in a car accident nine years ago that left him with life-long health problems.
Being a young carer has had a massive impact on my life. I have to administer my dad’s medication and take him to medical appointments.
Caring for my dad can have a detrimental affect on my education and social life. At times the responsibility can be emotionally tough and stressful for me to cope with.
I feel many young people don’t recognise they’re a young carer as it’s just a normal part of their family life.
Fixers have helped me to produce a poster that I hope will help other young people identify they are young carers and signpost where they can get help.
Me and my friends want young people to know that calories aren't the enemy!
