Young Carers Story, Ruby-Mae

Ruby-Mae’s young carer story in her own words

I am 8 years old and I think I have been a YC for around 12 months. I am a YC for my sister Ella who has Aspergers and sensory processing disorder. I help Ella when she is feeling sad, upset or unable to come out of her room. 

I really enjoy YC group as it gives me some freedom to just be me

I really enjoy YC group as it gives me some freedom to just be me, I love the trips as we can’t also do days out as sometimes Ella doesn’t feel well enough. 
I really like the fact that I am accepted at YC, I have ADHD and I find it hard to make friends. I have lots of friends at YC who don’t judge me and I can just be myself.
