GYC Twilight Conference is back for Young Carers Action Day!

Save the Date! Our Twilight Conference will be delivered online on 16th March 2022 4-6pm.    

The theme this year with be ‘Action on Isolation’. We will coproduce this event with young carers enabling them to use their voice to inform and educate professionals.  This is across education, health, commissioning, and social care – focusing on best practice for identifying and supporting young carers in a range of settings.

The challenges of the 2 years has meant we have gained experience in running engaging online sessions – so we hope that our online conference will have as much of an impact as previous face to face events.  There will be a choice of workshops led by young carers that will each a have different focus ie. Sibling carers, young adult carers, supporting young carers in schools and working with young carers impacted by parental mental ill-health.  We will also be giving an overview of our service and an update on how we adapted our delivery during covid restrictions.

Feedback from delegates of previous years has always focussed on the power of hearing directly from young carers about the issues that affect them.

“Thank you for the courage of the young people to share their experiences and advice for us”

“Hearing from the young carers was extremely powerful”

Invites will be circulated shortly – if you want more information or to register your interest in attending the conference please email mail@glosyoungcarers.org.uk or call on 01452733060.
