Carers Trust have just launched a survey which they hope will generate a powerful news story to give to the media ahead of Young Carers Awareness Day 2017 which takes place on Thursday, 26 January. Next year’s event will focus on the dreams and aspirations of young carers.

The survey results will help Carers Trust to show that it is difficult for young carers to juggle caring alongside pursuing their dream job and career aims – and that by helping and supporting young carers now they stand a better chance of fulfilling their dreams in the future.

If you are a young adult carer (aged 16-24) please click here to go to the survey. The closing date for responses is 5 December.
