Happy Young Carers Awareness Day from Jo and Sharan in Leeds! We are catching up over a cuppa to celebrate this important day.

Sharan has been a carer since age 7 and had support from Willow in Leeds. Since turning 16 she has been getting support from Carers Leeds and regularly sees her worker called Jo.

Sharan is currently at college and has so far received THREE offers to study Physiology at Uni later this year. Yay!

Sharan recommends that you “get as much support as you can. Caring is all about balance. Juggling home, school, a job and YOUR life.”
