Young Carer, by her brother’s side as he battles with Leukaemia

***Young Carers Action Day 16th March***

For kids who Care

It is Young Carers Action Day on 16th March.

1 in 12 children becomes a Young Carer at some point during childhood.

·There are young, unsung heroes in every neighbourhood, such as the inspiring, kind, twelve-year-old Maisie who has been helping to look after her seven-year-old brother Leo as he overcame his battle with Leukaemia.

Her key message is to Be kind. Sometimes children have things going on at home that you don’t know about.’
