Young Carers Festival

This year's Young Carers Festival was held over the weekend of Friday 27 June at Fairthorne Manor near Southampton. Find out what happened and see the pictures and videos on our Makewaves YCiF pages.

The Voice Zone, where young people get the chance to voice their opinion on what's happening for young carers and their families, celebrated our journey over the past 15 years, gave young people the chance to look, interact and explore how much has been achieved and allowed them to get involved in having their voices heard for the future. There are big changes in the Children and Families Act and Care Act which are going through consultation and having young people's voices and opinions fed through to government was a hugely important part of the Voice Zone this year.
