Young Carers Action Day – 16 March 2021

“Protecting Young Carers Futures”

#YoungCarersActionDay is about Protecting Young Carers’ Futures and making sure that all young and young adult carers get the support they need to go after their dreams.

Young and young adult carers have said they wanted Young Carers Action Day to be about their futures, highlighting the incredible skills they have developed through being a carer – like resilience, time-management and empathy.

These are all important skills, not just for young people moving into higher education – but also for those looking to enter the workplace. What’s more, they are skills highly valued by employers.

The Carers Trust team will be calling on decision-makers to develop new national action plans for children and young people with caring responsibilities – which must address education, employability and health and wellbeing.

Young Carers Action Day is an annual event led by Carers Trust. It raises awareness and calls for action to increase support for young people with caring responsibilities.

#YoungCarersActionDay is about action and delivering change for young and young adult carers

COVID vaccine and unpaid carers

If you are a carer you can book your first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine via the NHS or by calling 119.

Alternatively you can book to attend locally at The Record Store, The Old Vinyl Factory, Blyth Road, Hayes, Middx UB3 1HA via this link:

 https://oldvinylfactory.nhsbookings.com/v2/
It will help with booking if you have your NHS number to hand.

The vaccine is the best way to protect you and others around you and reduces the chances of you falling seriously unwell to coronavirus.

Once you’ve had the vaccine, you should continue to follow all the guidelines – that includes wearing a face covering, keeping a safe distance and washing your hands.

Every action we take to prevent the spread of COVID-19 will take us a step closer to a more normal way of life.

We ask that you don’t contact us with any questions, we are not experts, we are just trying to support the Council and the NHS to ensure carers get the vaccine.

Let your GP know now that you are a carer and ask if this could be registered on your medical record. All GP practices will have a carer registration form.

Please contact the office for a Carers ID letter to state you are a carer registered with us.
