VOYCE PG have been working hard in the run up to Carers Week (8-14 June 2015) to showcase what it means to be a young carer. Thanks to Sheffield Showcase, VOYCE PG have managed to source a shop front on Pinstone Street in Sheffield City Centre, where they are showcasing some of their work. This includes their campaign posters, poetry highlighting the experiences of young carers and the issues they face, and photography and young carers stories that recently featured at the Children’s Society ‘Hidden 2015’ exhibition in London.
Why not go check it out!? The showcase will run from 3rd-14th June 2015. We’d love to hear your feedback @WeAreVoyce #WeCareDoYou?!
