There are around 8,000 young carers in Hertfordshire and just over 2,000 are registered with us. During Carers Week we want to remind young people aged 18 and under that help their care for someone who is ill, disabled, or elderly that our Young Carers Service is there to support you.
To mark Carers Week we have launched a video that highlights a health project young carers were involved with alongside NHS organisations in Hertfordshire – Hertfordshire Community NHS Trust, NHS East and North Hertfordshire CCG and East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust. Young carers learnt about how the NHS services worked and staff discussed how they could better support young carers
