Who We Are
YUCAN is an organisation that supports young carers and their well-beings through fun workshops, co-created care plans, homework help and much more!
Founded by a young carer herself, Sanyu Musoke aims for YUCAN to be something impactful, awesome and life-changing for today’s young carers.
“Struggling with anxiety and depression became the norm, I felt that I wasn’t ‘entitled’ to seek help for my own troubles, especially as I was responsible for caring for family members who really needed me- Who was I to moan? When I finally identified myself as a ‘young carer’ I realised that there was very little support available, and what might have been available, wasn’t reaching me.”
