Being a Young Carer Champion is a very fulfilling and rewarding role. The training and support from Family action helps me to feel confident when having conversations about being a young carer with young people and their families. I support my colleagues in completing referrals to the young carers service, which saves time for them as I have all the information they require. It is every professional's responsibility to identify young carers within our communities and offer them the support they need to be able to achieve their full potential. I feel honoured being a YC Champion within my organisation and  I am committed to raising awareness about young carers. – Eunice de Silva, Family Coach, Achieving for Children
