“It’s time to make a difference for young carers. Raise awareness by sharing information with your friends and family. Ask your local school whether they are teaching young carers awareness and disability awareness in PSE / Social Ed lessons.
If they’re not, ask them why not?
We can all make a difference for young carers world wide, if we each speak out and raise awareness.
I’m currently working on an educational resource to raise awareness of young carers, disability and the associated bullying that young carers face. It’s called ‘Who cares for us?’ and it’ll be out in 2017.
In the meantime I’ll be sharing bits and pieces from the book on http://www.caitlinswish.com , so please keep an eye on the website. Thank you.”
