 when :          MONDAY 1 August  2016

where:  YSS, 13-17 Carden Street Worcester


A very special visitor is due to meet our young carers: Professor Becker  is one of the worlds leading experts on young carers . He is Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Head of College of Social Sciences at the University of Birmingham and Professor of Social Policy and Social Work.

He is Director of Young Carers International and his research has gone on to influence many policies – much of the statistics and information we use are directly from his work. This is a great “coup” for this young carers service that he is visiting us.Prof Saul Becker uni Birmingham

Professor Becker is coming to meet our Participation Group – approximately 15 young carers aged between 11 and 21. He accepted Neil Phillips, Senior Key worker’s invitation to meet the group following Neil hearing him speaking at the launch of latest research by the Children’s Society.


He will meet the group and field their questions about his research and his own life as a young carer. We will also be showing him some of the films we made for the 2015 conference and discussing with him what he feels are the biggest challenges facing young carers.

We are also hoping that  this may be  the first steps towards  working with  him  further  in the  future.
