Post 20946

So today feels like a sad day, I have just received an email about the closing of matter. It's such a shame as this has given many of us the chance to talk to others with similar circumstances and for me it has been a place to rant over the past few years without being judged. Matter has been there for me in my lowest of lows and highest of highs.

Back at the time to be heard events I managed to help promote it and encourage young carers to sign up to it. It's times like this that make you think of the end of an era. It also shows the financial struggle and lack of funding for carers in the UK.

For any of you who are like me and feeling a bit teary, remember to keep fighting for funding. Make sure you continue to strive forward an achieve your dreams. Don't feel afraid to reach out for support from friends and fellow peers. I have met some incredible people through matter/time to be heard events and hope to keep in contact with some of you - do feel free to send me your email addresses or Facebook contact details privately. Keep doing what you do best and stand united as the hidden army of carers!

I will leave you all with this inspirational quote ' All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them' - Walt Disney <3
