Katy has been with our Young Carers service for over 15 years.  Katy’s background is in youth work and adult mental health. Katy manages the day to day running of the service, including securing grants, managing the team, and raising awareness of the needs of young carers across Adult and Children services.  Katy also has regular face to face contact with young carers and their families, and the most enjoyable part of the year for her is the annual trip to Hebden Bridge, where she and her co- worker Jude are in charge of the all the cooking for over 30 young carers!
