Project Description

LUCY PRENTICE

Age 20, Pencader

I campaigned on behalf of young adult carers who, like me, were faced with the difficult choice between educating themselves for the future, or thinking of the present and claiming Carer’s Allowance. I listened to other young adult carers, who also wanted this to be changed, and so I set up a campaign to highlight this issue.

Through campaigning to change the law which prevents young adult carers like me from studying on full time courses, I feel I’ve got a voice. I’m sharing my film and story far and wide, and I hope others are inspired to do the same!
