I went to another wonderful and powerfully moving event this afternoon...

The Willows Young Carers Project is a brilliant partnership between Barnardo's and Education Leeds. I attended the launch of the Young Carers in Education CD-ROM at Leeds Town Hall. This had been produced by an amazing group of young carers supported by Shiela Davenport and Jenny Osborne. Nathan, Tara, Cammeron, Sara, Jamie, Megan and Danny told their stories and showed us the new CD-ROM... they are a truly awesome bunch of young people caring for brothers and sisters, mums and dads and grandparents and still managing to get to school and get on with their lives. The CD-ROM aims to help schools across Leeds understand and better support the huge number of young carers in the city.
