Young Carers Revolution

Young Carers Revolution (YCR) provides empowerment and influence to young carers and young adult carers (8 to 25 years) in York. Its purpose is to proactively influence services provided for them by statutory and third sector organisations.Supported by York Carers Centre the group is empowered to lead on ad progress their own projects and campaigns.

YCR is open to all young carers and young adult carers living in York. It is run by a team of volunteers and supported by York Carers Centre.

YCR has been around since 2009, and started their journey with an award winning media campaign, including a film that has been shown in every secondary school in York.

See the film here or on the right hand side of the screen.

Since then YCR have gone on to develop a play which toured primary and secondary school in York and Darlington, educating children and young people about young carer issues. See the film on the right of the screen, or on our youtube channel.

 

In January 2017 YCR created a new film titled ‘One day any day’ and gives an idea of a day in the life of a young carer. The film can be viewed on the right of this page or on our Youtube channel.
