Every year we hold our annual Young Carer of the Year Award to recognise the work that Young Carers carry out daily in the home for family members. Young carers often go un-recognised along with their own social, health and educational needs. The awards strive to raise awareness for all of Irelands’ young carers and the improvement of services nationwide.
