Young Carers Action Day is an annual event, organised each year by Carers Trust.
It’s a day for raising public awareness of young carers and young adult carers, the pressures and challenges they face, and the incredible contribution they make by caring for their family members and friends.
It is also a day to call for more action to support young and young adult carers and give them the extra bit of help they need to live full and healthy lives.
The day attracts widespread participation and public attention. Each year Carers Trust secures widespread coverage of the day in both national and regional TV, radio and print media.
Young Carers Action Day also attracts huge social media engagement with young and young adult carers all over the UK, sharing images, messages and other content like video, blogs and art. In the last few years #YoungCarersActionDay has trended on Twitter!
