Another conference success!

Thursday May 4th saw another fantastic Worcestershire Young Carers conference delivered by our BBC Children in Need funded Participation Group.

As per previous years the event was the hot ticket in town and the Duckworth suite at Worcester Warriors Sixways stadium was packed with professionals keen to learn more about what they could do to support young carers.

A standing ovation for another fantastic conference

The conference was planned and delivered by young carers themselves – with this years event being the most young person led so far. Digital technology was given a big role in the day with an interactive quiz multi-media icebreaker kicking the day off in style.

We were also joined by Professor Saul Becker from the University of Birmingham who delivered a wonderful key note speech around his own experiences as a young carer and what he felt were the biggest challenges facing young carers today.

Delegates all stayed on for a networking lunch following the conference and the feedback from all who attended was that once again, our young carers had delivered a wonderful event.

We’d like to say a special thank you to Professor Becker for donating his time to come and speak to our delegates and also to all at The Warriors Foundation who very kindly provided the fantastic venue for the day.
