Young Carer

Young Carers

You’re a Young Carer if you support or care for another member of your family, like a parent, sister/brother or grandparent, you could be the only person doing this, or maybe one of a few people pitching in.

You could be doing things like shopping, cooking and cleaning or other things like helping the person out of bed and get washed and dressed.

The Young carers program will help support you by:

Young carers youth club
Support in school and colleges
School holiday trips and activities like cinema trips, farm visits, and Christmas pantomime!
Arts and crafts sessions
One-to-One time
Fun and a chance to be a young person
Parent support and coffee mornings
