What is Young Carers Action Day (YCAD)?

Young Carers Action Day is an annual event, organised by Carers Trust.

It has taken place over the last six years to raise awareness of young carers and the incredible contribution they make to their families and local communities.

Until now, YCAD stood for Young Carers Awareness Day. But following feedback from young carers, we have made some changes, including the name!

You can find out more below on the changes we have made to YCAD.
