We care by Aberdeen Young Carers

Created by Young Carers in Aberdeen, the comic captures the stories that the Young Carers wanted other people to know about what it means to be a young carer – the good times, the challenges and the impact of their important role. 

The comic is free to download from http://bit.ly/youngcarersaberdeen

This piece of work was developed with support from Barnardo’s, Aberdeen City Libraries and Magic Torch Comics
