Inspirational young carers

Monday, November 19, 2012

Sheffield Young Carers Patron Meg Munn MP was recently invited to open their showcase event. It was attended by funders, education and healthcare professionals but the stars of the show were undoubtedly the young carers, who shared their experiences through drama, artwork, stories and presentations.

The event featured heartfelt stories from young carers and their families, alongside two new songs written and performed by the young people. Attendees also received an exclusive preview of an inspiring short film developed by young carers. The film provides a unique insight into the lives of the young people who care for a loved one with a long term illness, a disability, mental health or substance misuse problem.

Meg said:

“It was inspiring to meet at this showcase event some of the young people who are supported by the Sheffield Young Carers project. There is still too little understanding about the lives of young carers, and unfortunately many face problems at school. Their stories are compelling and making these available in a film should ensure that schools are more understanding and provide more support.”

The Sheffield Young Carers project offers support, understanding and respite for young carers, some of whom are as young as eight years old. To find out more please visit: http://www.sheffieldyoungcarers.org.uk/
