Children's Book Commission - Jo Aldridge
Professor of Social Policy and Criminology, Jo Aldridge has been commissioned to write an illustated children's book on young carers for Jessica Kingsley Publishers (JKP). The book is titled 'Can I Tell You About Being a Young Carer' and will form part of the JKP book series 'Can I Tell You About...'. It will be aimed at children and families as well as professionals who work with young carers and their families. The book, being published this year, will also be used as a resource for teachers when discussing caring issues in the classroom.
