YCFM have been the offical radio station of the Young Carers Festival for the last 18 years. Providing not only a voice for the 2000 amazing young people who attend each year, but a sound track to the most memorable and most important weekend in everyones diary.
“A young carer is a person aged under 18 who provides care, or who intends to provide care to another person.”
What an incredible weekend, thank you to everyone who helped, everyone who gave their time and especially to the amazing young carers who make all the work so absolutely worth it.
YCF is an incredible event. It’s often the only break some of these amazing, courageous and inspirational young people get each year.
