Young Carers Meeting - January 25th 2011 - 10.30am-12.30pm.

January 21 2011, 03:02pm

Further to the recent media coverage of young carers and the recent introduction of some specific young carer projects, Care Alliance Ireland and Crosscare (Carer Support Programme) are facilitating a meeting with individuals/organisations who have an interest in this area, with a view to building consensus and momentum with respect to the best way forward to progress support services in this area. The meeting is also an opportunity for organisations to share the learning to date and keep each other up to date on new developments.

The meeting is open to any organisations or individuals who are committed to better supports for Ireland's young carers.

The meeting will take place in Coleraine House, Coleraine Street on Tuesday January 25th from 10.30am-12.30pm.
