Due to the Coronavirus¬† pandemic, the 21st Young Carers Festival has been cancelled – due to take place over the weekend of the 26th – 28th June 2020, the decision was made to protect the health of the young people who attend and their family at home. The festival will return in 2021 bigger and better than ever before… we may have a surprise for you though…
