Young Carers Action Day 2023

So, when is this year’s Young Carers Action Day?

15 March 2023 – keep your diary free!

Great! And what’s the theme of this year’s Young Carers Action Day?

The theme for 2023 is Make Time for Young Carers.

But what does ‘Make Time for Young Carers’ really mean?

‘Make Time for Young Carers’ highlights two things that are really important for young carers:

  • the need for professionals and responsible adults to make more time to listen to young carers explain the challenges they face as young carers, so they can better understand the support young carers actually need.
  • Once they understand the sort of support that’s required, responsible adults then need to make time to put that support in place.
