On Monday 17th September, O.S.H. (the Barking & Dagenham Young Carers Sub Group) were delighted to welcome the Mayor of Barking & Dagenham, Councillor Sanchia Alasia and her two Disability Champions.
We had an attendance of 21 O.S.H members at the monthly meeting and the group were quick to start asking questions. They were really interested to find out what it is like to be Mayor and how they might become Mayor in the future! The Mayor was also very interested to find out what it is like to be a Young Carer and who the young people care for. We were chatting for so long that we had to stop for a break and some cake (and of course some fruit too!).
The Mayor enjoyed the visit so much, that she has also told us that she wants to be involved in the forthcoming Young Carers Awareness Day on Thursday 31st January 2019! So stay posted for more news!
Well done to all of the members of O.S.H. for making our guests feel welcome, for being open about your roles and for asking some great questions!
