Sophie Elston

Name: Sophie Elston
Age: 19
Year of the Fix: 2018
Location: Minehead, UK
Campaign: To help people understand the pressure on young carers.

I look after my mum, who has ME, and my brother, who has Asperges Syndromme.


I'm 19 years old.


There aren't a lot of opportunities for work in Somorset, and moving away is difficult when you have caring responsibilities.


I want my Fixers project to bring together young carers who face similar everyday stresses to mine, and provide them with a space to release these tensions as a group through fun activities.


I hope that it also raises awareness about the pressure that young carers are under.
