About the Project
We work with other charities to ensure young carers get all the support they need. Whenever appropriate we have them present at events. We work with volunteers in the planning/delivery of projects. This improves their confidence and self-worth. We work with companies and raise the profile of carers. We also help identify ways of supporting their staff who are caring for someone.
