Young Carers Actions Day
16th March 2022 is Young Carers Action Day; an annual event that raises awareness of young carers and the
challenges they face. To celebrate the day, Carers in Bedfordshire is holding a Dress Purple Day to raise
money for their work with young carers, and we would like to support this by wearing a purple article of
clothing – for example socks, t’shirt or hairband, alongside our normal school uniform.
Young carers take on lots of responsibility at home; they are mature, resilient and empathetic. However,
they miss out on friendships, don’t have time for their own interests and can be bullied for being
‘different’. This can cause isolation and low self-confidence. Carers in Bedfordshire makes a lasting
difference by supporting them through these challenges.
If you are able to make a donation of to support this, please Text OAK to 70470 to donate £2.
Texts will cost the donation amount plus one standard network rate message, and you’ll be opting into
hearing more from us. (Please note we can no longer accept cash donations).
If you would like further information about young carers and how our school supports them, please speak to
Many thanks for your continued support,
