YouNE Cares is an opportunity for young people who have caring responsibilities to come together and find out what it’s like to be a student at a university in the North East. We have been working in partnership with local authorities to develop a full programme of activities for young people in Year 10 and 11. We will provide a range of workshops at each of the Partner universities giving every young person a chance to find out more about their potential future careers, whilst making new friends, build their confidence and most importantly – have fun!
The programme will launch on Young Carers Day and will conclude with a residential event coinciding with the Young Carers Festival, providing young people in the North East a chance to celebrate their achievements.
