Young carers will be celebrated at an awards ceremony next week.

Barnet Carers Forum will host the event at Hendon Town Hall on June 24 to reward the work of young carers in the borough.

Nominations are still open for any young carers who help look after someone who has an illness, a disability, or is affected by mental ill-health or substance misuse.

Awards will be handed out by the Mayor of Barnet and there will also be music and stalls offering advice on caring for a loved one.

To nominate a young carer to receive an award contact Delroy Pomell at Barnet Carers Centre on 0208 343 9698.
