Young Carers Family Support

This is a new project where our Young Carers Family Support Workers offer the whole family advice and support as well as the opportunity to develop their skills to carry out daily tasks involved in living with and supporting someone who has an illness, disability, mental health or substance misuse problem.

We offer a free, confidential and non- judgmental service to assist in accessing the support needed. We work with the Young Carer, the cared for and the whole family in a variety of ways through;

  • One to one support for the Young Carer.
     
  • Home visits at a convenient time.
     
  • Signposting, advice and advocacy for the whole family including information on other services that the whole family might benefit from.
     
  • Groups for Young Carers with the opportunity to meet with other Young Carers make new friends and have some FUN!  
     
  • Help in setting personal and family goals and aspirations.
     
  • Regular contact through our newsletter and website.
     
  • Someone to talk to.
     
  • Support at school.
