Young Carers Action Day 2021 resources
Young Carers Action Day (YCAD) took place on 16 March 2021. We developed lots of free resources in English and Welsh.
Resources for young carers
Young Carers Skill Card
This card was used on social media by young carers to tell people about their skills.
Young Carer Skills Journal
This journal was used by young carers to write down all the skills they have and to track all the fantastic work they have done balancing caring on top of everything else, including education. This is a tool that young carers can use to help them in the future, for example when they are applying for courses, volunteering or jobs.
This pack was used to campaign and raise awareness about young and young adult carers and the issues that are important to them. It includes suggestions on planning and taking action to support the goals of Young Carers Action Day 2021.
Resources for young carers and the professionals who work with them
