Over the next few weeks I am pleased to say that we will be appearing at ceremonies for three awards. This is of huge credit to the amazing young carers we work with, and also to the quality staff I have on our team and the partners we work with.
Obviously 3 nominations does not mean 3 awards so I wanted to post this before all the excitement and possible disappointment if awards are not pocketed.
No matter what the fact is others have nominated our work is a huge boost to workers and young people and is massive recognition in itself for all that the young carers and the staff have achieved in the past 12 months.
SO WHAT EVER THANK YOU ALL FOR AN AMAZING 12 MONTHS, STAFF TEAM, PARTNERS AND OF COURSE YOUNG PEOPLE
Children & Young People Now; The partnership with the Lowry is nominated in the Carers Trust sponsored Young Carers Section for the innovative way the partnership engages with and raises awareness of young carers in Salford and beyond
Heart of Salford Award; The Young Carers Board have been nominated for the endless work they do in the city highlighting Young Carers issues & and working with politicians to ensure young carers stay on the local political agenda
Heart of Salford Award; Young carers have been nominated for the partnership work they have done with Salford Youth Council and Healthwatch carrying out a survey of the issues facing young people in Salford with regards their mental wellbeing-an excellent example of partnership working.
So here wishing them all the best of luck but remember we are proud of you all anyway
