The words of young carers and the work we do.
On the 3rd October this year, I was fortunate enough to be invited by the Children's Society as a Young Carers champion and Representative to attend a meeting in London.
The meeting was held by the Department of Health and it concerned a new bill that is being developed regarding Adult Carers. You may think being a young carers representative it won't be of much use to me, but in the bill, there is a little section in the Bill about young carers. We discussed and analysed the Bill, and suggested changes.
As a young carer representative, it was interesting to meet all sorts of people who work in different areas to do with caring.
There were a few difficulties in that not a lot was mentioned about young carers in the Bill, the language was hard to understand and the Bill itself is a huge chunk of paper!
Overall the day was long, but successful and hopefully the Bill will be approved and hopefully empowering adult carers alot more and make their caring lives easier
