My story

[p]Hi, I'm Jo, proud Children and Young People Coordinator for Kent Young Carers, one of many projects delivered by Imago supporting young people across Kent as well as; East Sussex, Bexley and parts of London : )[/p][p]I have worked for Imago for over 7 years and in that time I have had the privilege to work with and be inspired by Young Carers. Young Carers are aged 5-18yrs and have a caring role to any family member that may have; a long-term illness, physical or learning disability, mental health or substance misuse issue.[/p][p]I am incredibly passionate about supporting these amazing young people who play such a vital role within their family but are often hidden, miss out on opportunities and the chance to be a child. I hope to not only raise funds as part of the Young Carers Action Day on 16 March 2021 but to raise awareness of what many are relied upon to do on a daily basis. [/p][p]The Medway Valley footpath walk will see me cover the entire length of the district I lead starting at Tonbridge Castle and finishing at Leybourne Lakes following the River Medway path (approx 20miles) funds raised will go towards all Young Carers projects as well as disabled children (often siblings to our Young Carers) accessing our Short Breaks project delivered by Imago. THANK YOU : )[/p]
