To celebrate the day, the Carers Trust have produced a range of free activities and posters that you can download here.
You could also help young carers that you work with to apply for the Young Carers Activity Fund, a fund of up to £300 to get a break from their caring role.
Next closing date: Friday 9th February 2018. (Please note: Our service provides breaks from caring so this fund is only available for young carers who are NOT currently accessing or on the waiting list for Sheffield Young Carers).
You can also sign up to our newsletter to keep up to date with the latest resources and support available for young carers.
We hope this gives you plenty of ideas for Young Carers Awareness Day. We’d love to hear what you decide to do, so we can celebrate everything that’s happening across Sheffield.
Thanks for your support in helping to raise awareness and break down stigma for young carers everywhere!
