Location: Leeds, Yorkshire
Campaign: To get more support for young carers in schools

I've been caring for my mum since I was about 12. She had depression, and she was diagnosed with breast cancer last year. 

 

In school teachers would think I was daydreaming, but really I’d be thinking about how my mum was and if I’d remembered to book a doctor’s appointment for her. 

 

They would put it down to me not putting in the effort, instead of asking me what was wrong.

 

I want to show that young carers do care about school, but sometimes our mind is elsewhere and we need a little understanding.

The following Fixers helped me with this Fix: 

 

Charlotte Maynard

Levi Fairburn

Jennifer Murphy-Hunter

Holly Carlier

Paul Murphy-Hunter, Abigail Hale and Isabel Frank supported me with this Fix.
