Name: Archie Mohan
Age: 20
Year of the Fix: 2019
Location: Pinner, North West London
Campaign: To promote better understanding of Young Carers

When my father passed away I took on a lot more responsibilities than most people my age. For example, I support my 16 year old sister.

 

Being a young carer has a huge effect on your life.  Apart from anything else it has a massive impact on your ability to socialise with friends. Most of them don’t understand.

 

I also know from my own experience that many young people are carers, but don’t realise it.

 

It’s not all bad. Being a young carer has empowered me and made me more resilient. But I would like more people to understand what our lives are like.

I'd like to thank the following people for helping me with my Fixers project:

 

Daniel Maya

Maria Kayum

Kate Egerdon-King

Georgia Irwin Ryan

Keiran Joseph

Thanks for support from Joel Lamb of  Essex Youth Service, Essex County Council.
