What is The Carer Of The Year Award?

For a person who is at the centre of caring in community life, improving things for others and has demonstrated exceptional maturity in their work and has given up their time to help those less fortunate than themselves.

This award will recognise a very special care worker. Maybe they work full time as well as looking after a loved one, or perhaps they are just always there for you no matter what and constantly go above and beyond the call of duty in helping others.

WINNER: Olivia Ferguson

Kirsty Ferguson from Camelford has Multiple Sclerosis.

She's often in pain and needs a carer.

That carer is her sixteen-year-old daughter Olivia, who's been supporting her mum since primary school.

Livvy cooks, cleans and helps with personal care, often missing out on school and time with her friends.

Despite that, she passed her GCSEs with flying colours and even finds time to run award-winning blog The Odd Pigeon - supporting other young carers who feel down and alone.
