Tuesday the 26th September sees the 3rd Salford Young Carers Day, a day when the city celebrates the enormous contribution that young carers make to the daily life of the city.

So far we have planned Breakfast with the Ceremonial Mayor when a group of some of our younger carers will visit the ceremonial mayor in their Chambers for breakfast and to tell him about their lives as carers

We are hoping that either on the day or very near it members of the Young Carers Board will be meeting with the elected Mayor and lead councillors to discuss with them their Manifesto for change "Challenging the Poverty of Opportunity"

In the evening of the 26th we will all be at the Lowry for this years Showcase Event based on the poems, short stories and photographs of a group of very talented young carers exploring their lives as carers. As always this promises to be an amazing evening, the 6th such event we have run with our partners at the Lowry. If you have received an invite please make sure you respond as soon as invite and want to attend contact Paul Moran at the Carers Centre
