Secret Millionaire in Welwyn Garden City
A STAR of Channel 4’s Secret Millionaire will be in WGC tomorrow (Wednesday) talking about his experience growing up as a young carer.
Paul Ragan, left, will be speaking to delegates at Carers in Hertfordshire’s annual conference, at Campus West.
A young carer is clarified as someone aged between nine and 18 who takes on the job of looking after family members who have an illness, mental or physical disease or an alcohol or drug problem.
Paul, who starred on the hit show in March, cared for his mother who suffered from schizophrenia, from age five upwards.
He is now passionate about helping young people in similar situations.

“It’s also great when they have their chance to tell the people in charge what it’s like to be a young carer and what they can do to make things better for young carers.
“We are all excited and delighted that Paul Ragan is going to be joining us.”
