2017 Worcestershire Young Carers conference is fast approaching

With our Worcestershire Young Carers conference a month away, we have received feedback  that the card payment only system we are currently using for the £15 cost (to cover all refreshments including a networking lunch)  is making it difficult to confirm their booking.


We are now also able to take cheques or cash.


The keynote speech is by Professor Saul Becker from the University of Birmingham. This really is a special opportunity to hear from someone who is considered to be the world’s leading expert on Young Carers.  Professor Becker is a former young carer himself and has gone on to write research papers for many organisations – research that has directly influenced government policy in the UK, Scandinavia and Australia. Professor Becker is engaging, informative and passionate – you will not want to miss out on the opportunity to hear him speak.


To book go to our page: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/worcestershire-young-carers-yc17-professionals-us-tickets-32294445556 , if you are not paying by card, click on the “enter voucher code” link and enter the code “YC17alternativepayment”. This will reduce the balance due to £0 and allow you to complete your registration.


If you choose this option, please e mail neil.phillips@yss.org.uk to advise on your preferred method of payment – cash or cheque (made payable to YSS Ltd). As in previous events, your booking confirmation can be used as an invoice.


Should you have any more questions or are still facing a barrier to attending, please e mail neil.phillips@yss.org.uk and I will do my best to support your attendance.
