Young Carers Action Day: Supporting young carers in employment
City & Guilds' recent Youth Misspent report revealed that nearly one in five (19%) young people have been, or still are, a carer for a relative. Perhaps unsurprisingly, being a carer at a young age impacts their education and employment trajectory, with 28% of young carers working less than eight hours a week.

The City & Guilds Foundation is proud to be joined by Carers Trust, the leading charity supporting young and young adult carers, to bring you this event on Young Carers Action Day.

This session will explore the specific challenges young carers face so that you can better support them through the recruitment process and once in employment. Ensuring a fairer and more inclusive start for young carers as they move into the world of work.

This session will also highlight the transferable skills young carers have to offer that come from their lived experience, such as money management skills, responsibility and compassion, and excellent time management and communication skills.

Our Advocacy Lead, Lauren Roberts, will host this session alongside our brilliant guest speakers:

- Kirsty McHugh, CEO, Carers Trust
- Antonia Tony-Fadipe, Inclusive Hiring Lead, The Body Shop
- Lisa Jackson, Head of Operations, Going Further into Employment
- Katharine Macy, Young Adult Carer 
- Alicia Jones, Young Adult Carer  
- Vishali Nagardas, Young Adult Carer
