Location: Aylesbury
Campaign: To encourage professionals to be more understanding of young carers

I care for my brother who has ADHD and Asperger’s syndrome.

 

Some days it can get difficult, but you have to stay strong and carry on.

 

I would like more professionals, including doctors and teachers, to understand our situation a bit better.

 

Even just asking how we are coping can be a huge thing and make our lives a little easier.

 

I wouldn’t change what I do for anything, but it’s sometimes nice to be recognised.

I would like to thank Emma Hollings and Jade Drier for helping me with this Fix.

This project was supported by Heart Of Buckinghamshire Community Foundation.
