Name: Heidi Grogan
Age: 18
Year of the Fix: 2017
Location: Milton Keynes
Campaign: To show the positive side to being a young carer

I care for my dad who has bi-polar disorder.

 

It can be challenging at times, but I’m immensely proud to be helping someone when they need me.

 

In my opinion, it’s often the negative side of being a young carer that is highlighted, but it can be a really rewarding experience.

 

It can make you more mature, better able to cope with difficult situations and also bring families together.

 

My team and I have made a film with Fixers showing what it can be like for those who look after loved ones and that it’s not all bad.

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

 

Heidi Grogan

Thomas Harrison

Mustafa Ali

Chelsey Keeble

Paige Pilkington

Amber Hurley

 

 

I would like to thank Debbie Norton, Young Carers & Young Adult Carers Team Co-ordinator for helping me with this Fix.
