This Carers Week (8 – 14th June 2020) we are excited to launch our new film that celebrates a young carers health-focused project.
The project involved young carers and staff from the Carers in Hertfordshire, East and North Hertfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group, Hertfordshire Community NHS Trust, and East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust working together to review and improve the support the NHS provided young carers.
The group of young carers, the ‘Youth Exec’, visited each organisation and helped to raise awareness of young carers and their families needs. One result of this project was a ‘young carers space’ that was introduced at Lister Hospital in Stevenage.
You can view the film that celebrates this project at Carers in Herfordshire’s YouTube Channel here.
Thanks go to NHS England for providing funding, Hitchin TV for producing it and all the young carers and staff involved in the project and filming.
