Young Carers at the heart of GYC conference on Young Carers Action Day 2022

We Care, We Count

On the 16th March 19 young carers aged between 10 and 21 years old, from across Gloucestershire, joined the GYC team to share their thoughts, feelings, ideas and experiences with 50 delegates in our first ever online Twilight Conference.
Professionals from educational settings, health, social care and funders joined us virtually to hear first-hand from young carers as we channelled this year’s theme – ‘Taking Action on Isolation’.
Delegates listened to presentations from the team with spotlights on our different services, watched a powerful film documenting our 2-year pandemic journey at GYC and then were able to attend a choice of 5 interactive workshops co-created with young carers.
We asked Young Adult Carer Yusraa to share her account of the day - “Attending the conference, particularly as a co- speaker, was something I’d never even imagined doing. It was out of my comfort zone, but the team at GYC did an incredible job making sure I was well informed, comfortable and prepared. I have never felt my confidence boost so much and it was the most rewarding experience I've had.
I finally felt pushed to my full potential and no longer afraid of speaking to others, presenting and relaying my ideas and thoughts.
This was incredibly important for me in particular due to university interviews in the future and also helping me mould and shape my public speaking skills.
First, we had a very warm and comfortable welcome, speaking to friends and getting settled in. It was incredible to see such a huge age range and the excitement could be felt in the room!
After settling into our respective rooms, I felt so excited and I knew my friends also felt the same!
