It can be very isolating being a carer.

So often when I was caring for my mum who had Dementia I struggled to communicate about what was going on. It can be very isolating being a carer. Richard Mccourt supported the young carer's hidden campaign alongside Jade Ewen and Jo Whiley.

I was really happy to be asked to be the patron of Sheffield Young Carers – young carers need support and to try and continue living their own lives.
