Launching The Care Collective Player! -video1min40s-


Video Care of Youth Friendly

Welcome to The Care Collective Player!

Like iPlayer but full of useful life stuff about life as a young carer.

Over the coming weeks and months, we are going to be sharing the best video content for young carers from across the world.

Films, animations and sketches made by young people for young people. From time to time we'll even throw in the odd bits of help and advice. We might even do the odd podcast or video from our team. 

We want YOU to tell us what you want to see on Care Collective TV. If there is a webpage, a video or a playlist that you think might help another young carer, then get in touch.

WhatsApp or message Lorri on 07737937887 or find us on Facebook
