8th December 2016Category: Young Carers
Young Carers Awareness Day (or YCAD) is a national day of recognition for the 700,000 young carers in the UK. YCAD 2017 will take place on 26th January - the theme is 'When I grow up' and it's all about helping young carers to achieve their dream jobs or career.
The day aims to highlight the challenges that young carers face and how difficult it can be for young carers to realise their hopes and dreams for the future unless they have the right support in place.
There are various ways you can be part of YCAD 2017. Here at West Cumbria Carers we are still in the planning stages but we will update the Activities Calendar as soon as we can - keep checking back!
