National Youth Work Awards – Participation & Youth Voice

On behalf of Young Carers Voice and Young Carer Ambassadors, we are delighted to hear that Young Carers Voice has been selected as a finalist for the National Youthlink Awards.

This is a fantastic achievement and a testament to the hard work and dedication of Young Carers Voice and Ambassadors. We look forward to celebrating with other finalists and excited to find out the results!

Young Carers Voice is entirely driven by young carers aged 14-to-18, giving them the platform to advocate for themselves and their peers. Their initiatives, decisions, and actions are all youth-led, ensuring that the voices of young carers are to the forefront.

YCV isn’t just a support group; it’s a safe space where young carers can express themselves freely, talk about their worries, and seek guidance without fear of judgment. Through shared experiences and mutual support, they create a sense of belonging and camaraderie among young carers, making them feel valued, heard, and understood

As one young person explained: “The staff will always take each issue seriously, and I’ve never felt anxious talking to them. The group has done a whole load of good, from spreading awareness, to fighting for our rights, I am honoured to be a part of that.”
