Yasmina's work promoting the Be Bothered campaign was recognised as an outstanding piece of work, leading the way to enable young carers to be recognised and supported and leading the change in the way services can support and empower young carers.

At the event Yasmina was presented with her award certificate by the Olympian Diane Modahl.
