Get involved in #CareForMeToo if you are a Carers Trust Network Partner?
We want you, and the young people you work with, to get involved in our campaign.
You can get involved by encouraging local decision makers to improve support for young carers’ mental health in your local area.
Our resources provide examples of fun ways to get young carers and young adult carers thinking and talking about their mental health. They also provide ideas on how you and those you support can say #CareForMeToo this Young Carers Awareness Day on 31 January 2019. Find out more about Young Carers Awareness Day 2019.

Hear from young carers who are saying #CareForMeToo!
Young carers and young adult carers - supported by Carers Trust Network Partners (Suffolk Family Carers, Northamptonshire Carers and Blackpool Carers Centre) - are at the heart of #CareForMeToo and have really helped us to shape the campaign.
We'll be sharing their blogs, vlogs, poems and posters on this page shortly so that you'll be able to hear them saying #CareForMeToo. We're kicking off with Molly’s #CareForMeToo poster.
Further campaign resources
Resources, including lesson ideas and classroom activities for teachers, will be added in early January 2019.
