Young Carers Action Day 2021 resources
Young Carers Action Day (YCAD) 2021 is taking place on 16 March 2021. We have lots of free resources to help you get involved.
They are available in English and Welsh and can be used in England, Wales and Scotland.
You can use the resources as they are or download a version you can add your own logo to.
Resources for young carers
Young Carers Skill Card
Fill in this card and use it on social media to tell people about the skills you have gained as a young carer.
Young Carer Skills Journal
Use this journal to write down all the skills you already have and to track all the fantastic work you are doing balancing caring on top of everything else, including your education. This is a tool you can use to help in the future, for example when you are applying for courses, volunteering or jobs.
Use this pack to campaign and raise awareness about young and young adult carers and the issues that are important to you. There are lots of suggestions on how you can plan and take action to support the goals of #YoungCarersActionDay.
