First support group for Young Carers in Switzerland
Giulia has founded the first support group for young carers in Switzerland in 2016 with support from selbsthilfecenter.ch and the young carers research team of Careum. In a videomessage, the 18-year-old Giulia adresses the central subjects that young carers occupy: The fact that they are not alone and can support themselves mutually if they are in similar informal situations, although it is often difficult to find the right words their own sensitivities.
Jana Bär, Anja Vock and Vanessa Weiss, three graduates of the Berufsfachschule Gesundheit und Soziales BFGS in Brugg, dealt in her matura paper intensely with the everyday life of young carers. The authors conducted expert's interviews, among others with Prof. Dr. iur. Agnes Leu of Careum Research, the research institute of the Kalaidos Univerity of Applied Sciences. In an impressive case study the everyday life of a nine-year-old girl is shown who supports her ill mother. The following film which belongs to the matura paper features the three authors introducing their results.
