As part of the Time to be Heard campaign, Carers Trust organised an event for 200 young adult carers (aged 16-25) and their support workers to get their voices heard by the decision makers who could reduce barriers to further and higher education.

Some key themes emerged:

  • Young adult carers need tailored information.
  • Young adult carers are concerned about disclosing their caring status.
  • Young adult carers are worried about going to university.
  • Young adult carers face distinct barriers to accessing further education.

The event also provided information and dispelled myths about access to college and university.
