Young Carers Awareness Day 2020

08 January 2020

As you may know, 30th January is Young Carers Awareness Day, it would be great if as many organisations as possible could get involved and celebrate the day. The theme of the day is #countmein calling on compulsory education providers to identify and support young carers.  With this in mind Warwickshire Young Carers are asking for young carers, families, schools, professionals and anyone who wants to be involved to raise awareness of young carers by writing down a word or phrase that they think describes a young carer. This can be done on this template  or just on a piece of paper/post it note then take a photo either of yourself with the statement or just the statement and tweet us with it (@warksyc) using the #countmein and #warksyc #YoungCarersAwarenessDay. If you don’t have twitter you can use Facebook (@warwickshireyoungcarers) or Instagram (warwickshireyoungcarers), be sure to tag us so we can see your pictures. We will be tweeting our own images throughout January in the lead up to Young Carers Awareness day, please like and share so that we can raise as much awareness as possible.
