Worcestershire Young Carers is delighted to announce that four of their young carers have been awarded Tryangle Awards in recognition of their own caring roles and support of their fellow young carers.

Bailey, 12 and Alana O’Connor, 13, received the award on behalf of the entire Young Carers Ambassadors Team in the Good Friends and Carers category; they were nominated by Worcestershire Young Carers' Team Manager, Jon Cawdron.

Emily Denby 14 and Demi-Lou Dellaway, 12 also received an award in the same category, on behalf of the entire Participation Group, and were nominated by key worker, Vicky Parker.

The Tryangle Awards recognise the efforts and achievements of young people in our community; they are Worcestershire’s premier annual young people awards, celebrating the efforts of those, who despite health, disability or social problems manage to overcome adversity and ‘get the job done’, at home, at school or college, or within the community.  

Jon Cawdron, said: "I'm thrilled for our winners, who all absolutely deserve this recognition. It's been an incredibly tough time for young people recently, but our young carers and in particular Bailey, Alana, Emily and Demi have shown such resilience, and gone out of their way to help and support other people. We're proud of them all."

The Young Ambassadors Team is funded by #iwill2018 and offers young carers a place on performing arts workshops, with the aim of improving communication, public speaking and presentation skills, and ultimately supporting young people to develop the skills that employers look for. The Participation Group meets regularly to highlight the needs of young carers, and helps get their voices heard by organisations and services that affect them.
