DRP, based at Hartlebury, Worcestershire, following their amazing  support of  Worcestershire Young Carers  at  Christmas time, are now  very generously hosting and supporting a Young Carers conference  on April 20.

Mary Lewis, YSS Worcestershire Young Carers Team Manager,  said”  I think this a fabulous offer and great opportunity for young carers. Judging by the standard of the party they laid on , it would give young carers an experience that they probably won’t ever have access to again, to work along side professional organisers will help them develop and improve on the skills and knowledge they gained from planning last May’s conference. 

I think it’s an excellent networking opportunity, especially for those young carers who are interested in this line of work, and I know we got a few young carers who are.  It could be a great way to broaden horizons and raise the aspirations of the young carers with whom we work and would  also contribute to our Children in Need project aims. “
