Today is Young Carers Awareness Day and we are excited to launch our new publicity for Carers in Hertfordshire’s Young Carers’ Service. The publicity has been co-produced and designed with young carers, at our summer residential trips and with the Young Carers Council.
You Are Not Alone was an important theme that young carers wanted to be central to the publicity; letting other young carers that there is support out there and that they are not on their own with their experiences.
The new publicity includes:
A poster that can be displayed in schools, GP surgeries, hospitals and other settings
A flyer with more detailed information in about the support we offer young carers and their families
A postcard that can be given out to young carers
You can download our poster and postcard here.
You can hear young carers views on our two new films:
‘Support from Carers in Hertfordshire’ click here
‘Telling Schools I’m a Young Carer’ click here
Thanks to all the young carers who took part in the filming of these, and to Herts Community Trust for filming.
We will be launching our new flyer soon – watch this space!
