  • @Mike she adorable! Keep her away from aife. (Classic sainsbury's eggs in the back ground 😂 not nosey I promise) 
  • CarolineV said: My question is do you get any practical support from the young carers service, or is it more emotional support, or a bit of both? Aimee answered it a lot better on for the young carers than what I can really express for …
  • you've been caring nearly all your life?  Yep @Aidan always brings up new surprises each day. Like tonight I had a dog with me my mum was asleep early and I had to get my stepdad in bed normally be can do it on his own not today. Ever day is diff…
  • Sorry just catching up on everything.  @Aidan good question, not sure about aimee but for me I've grown looking after my family. My first time I realised I was a carers was when I was 8 or 9 and i broke my elbow quite badly so I want able to do as …
  • What have we done to get Alice 2 night in a row? Is punishment or something? 😂
  • @Aidan also carers threads we have you can ask us questions on. The the thread in change the world probably a better place for them this time round but throw them on any NEW carers threads and well answer when we can just tag one of us in them and w…
  • That's a huge number, @Abigail. The figure as it stands is 8 million carers so that's the little ones aged 8 right up to the 65+ carers. Raising awareness is a bit like football, 1 person brings the ball and others get involved and before you kno…
  • hey @htwohig2412 I read a very scary statistic this morning in an article from xenzone about carers, by 2030 there will be about 10 million carers in the uk very scary statistic. Raising awareness for carers is just normal for me. I'm really glad it…

  • Just want to bump this thread as carers week is next week. Volunteers week is this week ... a lot of people who work with young carers are volunteers. The adult systems have a lot as well. Blackpool carers is an example of a carers system who has vo…
  • Painted my nails last night love the colour - purple for next week carers week. 
  • My joints wreck so much. I've done my normal day and I just feel physically crap. My joints hurt, I feel horrible, I feel faint. I want answers to why i feel like this and why my body is giving up on me. I cant control anything right now not with me…
  • Thank you @alice123. Long fight a head these next 2 months. Been given 2 weeks for the operation could take place for her so getting all coursework done so I can be present for when the time comes.  My cousin will no doubt be in hospital for my 18t…
  • alice123 said: Hey Abi, I've looked through the links you shared and they are so informative. Thank you for sharing and raising awareness for a cause which is clearly close to your heart   Thank you. Its something not commonly spoken about …
  • I'm going to miss being around but its whats best for me I think at the moment. I've come right down from doing all chats Sunday to Thursday 8 to 9:30 to doing opening round unless I've been pinned in chat by the mod (Joke I promise)  @CarolineV Yo…
  • coc0mac said: Hi There, This is so important, thank you for sharing! I was wondering if there are any ways others can get involved to support young carers in any way? Hey @[email protected],  My I just ask what do you mean by support? Is it fo…
  • She back at home safe and happy being her normal self. She has her dog back as well which she loves as he cleans up all the food she drops. Feeling alright about it to be honest @Aife  If I completely left mods such as Aman, Michelle and Alice woul…
  • Keep us updated with how your cousin is doing. She was discharged from her 2nd hospital the other day not sure if the physio helped or not but I am assuming its helped a bit.  It's not exactly leaving more like taking a step back for a while. Som…
  • So I got told to pop up on here and 'request' Purple confetti for carers week 10-16th June.  Don't blame me, blame Italia
