Young Carers are anyone under the age of 18 who provides, or intends to provide care for another person, taking on a role that is more usually done by an adult. Our young carers service aims to support young carers in a number of ways.
1. Whole family support, we visit families at home or school and listen to the impact of caring on the young person, working with the whole family to ensure that young carers have the same opportunities as their peers.
2. A voice for young carers, we run a young carers council working with decision makers to ensure that young carers have a say in services that affect them and their family.
3.Activities for young carers, skiing, crafts, residential breaks all allow young carers the chance to meet others in a similar situation and build strong supportive bonds.
4. Training for schools and other professionals, if you want to know more about young carers and how you can support them get in touch.
