What a fantatsic day and week had by all. Thursday 31st January 2019 was National Young Carers Awareness Day. There was lots going on throughout the week in Barking & Dagenham and Thurrock.
Staff were in and out of schools completing assemblies, raising awarness and trying to reach out to those hidden Young Carers and on the day itself there was some special celebration events.
Keep a look out to find out how much we raised and what Schools were supporting our Young Carers Awareness Day this year.
The below poem was written by two Thurrock Young Carers using the #CareForMeToo theme. We made sure the poem was shared around social media informing as many people as possible.
