THE work of young carers in Conwy was featured in a talk to Llandudno Rotary Club.

Jo Chapman, who is an outreach worker for young carers, told members of her experiences in Conwy.

Jo, who has worked supporting young carers for 23 years, outlined the various ways in which she reaches out to support an invisible army of young people who have found themselves in a caring role within their family.

Alternatively those needing the help may be siblings of those needing the care and whose own needs can often overlooked by a harrassed family who need to focus on the needs of another member of the family.

The help ranges through counselling, through practical hands on help and support and organising events where carers and their siblings can meet others.
