Young Carers Action Day is an annual event organised by the Carers Trust to raise awareness of young Carers and the incredible contribution they make to their families and local communities. This year the theme is all about Protecting Young Carers Futures, so to mark the occasion we had a chat with Anthony a Young Adult Carer who has been engaged with our Young Adult Carers Project for a number of years.
We asked for his perspective on a number of different themes around his experience of being a Carer; from the impact that being a Carer has had on other aspects of his life, what he wishes he had known back at the start, his plans for the future, and his message to any Carers watching.
Manchester Carers Centre would like to extend a huge thank you to Anthony for taking the time to contribute to this video and share your experience so eloquently.
