Young Carers Carers Action Day was slightly different to previous years but that did not stop our Young Carers from raising awarness and making everybody know about Young Carers.
Our staff got involved in the 'wear something yellow' theme, which was fantastic as our facebook page was covered in yellow.
During the day we had some schools running their own virtual assemblies and then we had 2 live Q&A's. One at lunchtime where volunteers, staff and young carers joined in and then in the evening we had another Live Q&A where we was asking our subgroup members their experiences of being a Young Carer and their hopes and dreams for the future.

We also wanted to share our Youtube Young Carers video across our social media platforms and had a target to reach a certain amount of views. Check out the 5 minute video below which our Young carers created back in 2019. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c7QIMStRw-c
We would like to invite you to watch the link for our Valence Young Carers video that the children filmed at Valence Primary School to raise awareness for all Young Carers. They were very nervous, but we think they did a wonderful job! https://youtu.be/AfEtqo4Vl9k
It was a great day all round and we can't wait already for next year.
