Thank God they care and we must care for them
The Chief Nursing Officer for England marked Young Carers Awareness Day, which recognises more than 700,000 young people in the UK who provide care & support to family & friends.  As part of the Commitment to Carers NHS England has worked with young carers to make sure that their voices are directing the actions taken to promote awareness and help them make improvements across the NHS.
