Last night the BBC shone a light into the reality of being a young carer. This is the story of how the dynamics of a family completely changed after Charlotte had both her legs and hands amputated as a result of pneumococcal sepsis.
“Katie [Charlotte's 11-year-old daughter] has become my young carer, who saved my life. I wouldn't know what to do without her. If it wasn't for her, I don't think I'd be here today"
Come join us for our annual Christmas Extravaganza! There will be lots of fun and Christmas activities to take part in as well as meeting the big man himself... Santa!
