Burgess Hill young carer Phoebe Green, said: “Young carers has given me a chance to do lots of new things.”

Phoebe’s mother, Louise, said: “We are so grateful to the Young Carers Partnership. Our daughter Phoebe has taken part in wonderful activities and always has something to look forward to in the holidays alongside children with similar life experiences so she does not have to explain to the children how her life is different. Phoebe always comes back with a huge smile.”
