Please have a look at the 'Y Factor', one of the highlights of this year's Young Carers Festival.

The Y Factor featured several young carers auditioning to become part of a group performance of 'Shy to be human', the festival's theme song.

It's a fun video - have a look.

 

Get involved - support young carers

For years we have advocated for and helped the thousands of young carers across England. Currently we’re supporting Young Carers in Focus (YCiF), an exciting opportunity for young carers to feel empowered and supported to have a voice with a wider audience.

If you’re a young carer or know one, please have a look at the site and see how you can get involved.
