Young Carers Awareness Day

Applies to-All Schools 

Young Carers Awareness Day is organised annually by Carers Trust to highlight the pressures and challenges experienced daily by young people as a result of caring for a member of their family.

This year, Young Carers Awareness Day is on 31 January.
