Reaching out – Advice from young people out of school for different reasons

  • Find the courage within yourself to open up.

  • Just stick in there and don’t give up, because it will get better. You’re not the only one…. Even if you’re the only young carer at school, there are always people outside of school you can talk to.

  • Does it define me? Who am I? I am sporty… I like cooking… I am not just sick!

  • I’ve got a lot more confidence, to stand up for myself as a Gypsy Traveller and not hide who I am. Stick it out…Get the education you can get and do the best you can.
