Children & Young People Now Awards 2016

Last year, in partnership with the Lowry Theatre, we stunned ourselves & were awarded the Young Carers Award for all the outstanding partnership work we carry out in relation to raising awareness of young carers issues whilst also giving young carers the opportunity to access the arts and have similar opportunities as YPs who are not carers.

Well it seemed rude not to try and defend the "crown" accepting that there are a lot of excellent Young Carers Projects out there.

So this year we nominated the Young Carers & Young Adult Carers Board for all the work they have done over an 8 year period, during which almost 50 YCs have been involved. books, films, photographic exhibitions, school session, surveys and more. Most importantly they have also built up a massive reputation with both national and local politicians, as well as commissioners, as they have debated and raised questions about services for young carers. They have all earned tremendous res. They deserved the nomination.

and they deserve to be shortlisted....

So it's off to London again on November 24th, let's hope the trip to the Gala Ball is as successful as last year........
