Charlotte joined our young carers group 5 years ago aged 13 and has since become a volunteer supporting the group.  She shows real empathy with other young carers,  juggling her volunteering with college work and part time employment and has made great use of opportunities to give herself a better future.  Having secured a college place to study graphics, she has used her volunteer training to deliver summer play work with Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council. Charlotte has also become a regional ambassador for UK Youth’s Community Leaders Network. This is a project supporting the governments Step up to Serve Campaign and supported by the Cabinet Office.
