Imago staff celebrate #YCAD 2019 in their PJ's!

Imago celebrated Young Carers Awareness Day on 31st January with a Wear Your Pyjamas To Work Day. Staff came into the office wrapped up warm against the cold in their pyjamas, to raise awareness of Young Carers and all the work they do at home, at of all times of the day, and asked for donations.


Staff also supported the Carers Trust’s #CareForMeToo campaign on facebook and twitter.
