"Caitlin’s Wish is an imaginative book beautifully illustrated that can be a fun family read and a terrific resource in schools and youth settings to ensure that all young people have a better understanding of the road traveled by young people with caring responsibilities. Carers Trust is delighted to be linked to this publication and would encourage everyone to buy their own copy and then get one to pass on to friends and family." Angela Roberts, Director of Wales, Carers Trust.

“I just want to say how amazing I think this whole Caitlin’s Wish project is. Victoria has worked ever so hard on it. I’m just sorry I can’t be there to celebrate the launch, but I wish it well. It’s a fantastic book, everyone’s going to love it; especially children. I think it really is a great insight into the life of a young carer – It’s great!"

“An imaginative, thought provoking book which is beautifully illustrated. It makes a perfect resource for schools to use in conjunction with the ‘Carer's Trust' schools resource pack. Reading Caitlin’s wish will enable young people to gain a better understanding of what being a young carer is really like. Furthermore reading it will encourage greater empathy, respect and tolerance from all ages who are not personally affected by illness or disability themselves." Karl Napieralla OBE

All of this can be helped by raising awareness within our communities of this, all too often, hidden world. Together, let us do all we can to let these children know that they are not alone, that they have our support and that the future can be hopeful and full of promise. Please give Victoria my best wishes and I hope the launch is a great success.” Michael Sheen OBE (Pt 3)

The day encourages open communication regarding the potential effects of bullying, anxiety, depression and suicide. Healthy communication about these topics is viewed as an excellent preventative tool. It gives students and teachers the freedom to express their thoughts on these issues, therefore reducing the stigma associated with them.
