We've signed the Young Carers Covenant - now it's your turn!


A big thank you to everyone who has signed the Young Carers Covenant and pledged to take action to create fair futures for young carers and young adult carers.

Help us spread the word and get more people to sign the Young Carers Covenant

It’s really important that we get as much political support as possible for the Young Carers Covenant.

So please check the list below and if your local politician hasn’t already signed up to support the Young Carers Covenant, you can email them to ask them to sign.

Click here to find out who your local politician is here in England, here in Scotland, here in Wales and here in Northern Ireland, and to find their email address – all you need to do is insert your postcode into the search box and your local politician's details will come up.

You can then send them an email asking them to show their support for young carers and young adult carers. Make sure you remember to tell them they can find out more about the Young Carers Covenant here
