Young carers are children and young people who help look after a member of the family who is sick, disabled or has mental health problems, or is misusing drugs or alcohol. They may be someone who has direct caring responsibilities or they may be someone whose life is affected as a result of living with someone who has these conditions.

The third phase of the Home Office Disrespect Nobody campaign will run from today, 29 March, to the beginning of May 2018.
The aim of the campaign is to prevent young people, both boys and girls aged 12 to 18 years old, from becoming perpetrators and victims of abusive relationships.
For 2018, the focus of the campaign will be consent, sexting and personal boundaries, which are the issues many young people need more education and information on. All campaign advertising including radio, video-on-demand and social media, directs young people to the website http://www.disrespectnobody.co.uk where they can find further information and the details of organisations which can provide help and support.
We have produced a range of partner support materials to help you use the resources with the young people that you work with and promote it within your local area. These include posters, social media assets and materials developed specifically for LGBT young people.
Campaign assets are available to download here on gov.uk and the Home Office has tweeted about the campaign. Please help support the campaign on social media by retweeting our post.
We have also produced a DVD containing the campaign adverts, you can order up to 10 copies of the DVD by emailing VAWGCampaigns@homeoffice.gsi.gov.uk
Thank you for your support. PLEASE VISIT BELOW FOR MORE INFO

On Tuesday 13th February Burgess Hill Youth Members from both the Junior and Senior club played in a football tournament in Worthing. They played other teams from all over the county. The event was organised and run by Albion and the Community. All the members had a very enjoyable day, even though the weather wasn’t great.
They also had the opportunity to have a picture with Brighton & Hove Albion player Pascal Gross.
Every Monday and Wednesday (term time only) a football coach from Albion and the Community comes to Burgess Hill Youth and coach’s all interested members.
Here is some pictures from the event
