Summary

On 30 October 2014, an opportunity was created for young carers to influence strategic leaders and policy makers regarding the impact of the caring role on the health and wellbeing of young people. On the day each of the professionals that attended the event were asked to make a pinky pledge with a young carer where they promised to take one action in the week following the event and another action within six months. This e-book sets out the pledges and updates on the progress made on each one.
