Last Thursday, 6 young adult carers attended our “Public speaking, confidence boosting and presentation skills” event. This was led by inspirational trainer Ore from Speakers Trust– a charity whose mission is ‘training young people to become more effective communicators and use their voices to effect change’.
It was an incredible session full of energy, honesty, laughter and empowerment. The transformation from start to finish in each young person was incredible and by the end so many fears about speaking in public had disappeared.
Many of the participants regularly give their time and energy to help spread awareness of young carers and we are sure that this session will help them to speak with confidence in all areas of their lives, including when telling their stories to help others like themselves.
One of the young adult carers relayed how:
“Ore was the most inspirational person I have met. Her charisma and engagement were phenomenal and her story blew me away”.
A huge thank you to Rotary Club of Gloucester for funding this unique opportunity that will help each young carer’s journey into further education and employment in the future.
