The Young Carers Project
The Young Carers Project supports young carers 8 - 25 years old by working in schools and with other agencies to offer advice and guidance, enabling them to have the same opportunities and life chances as other young people.
Some of the support we offer Young Carers:
- One:One Support
- School 'Drop-ins'
- Holiday activity programmes
- Issues based workshops (self-esteem, bullying, bereavement)
- General down-time where young carers can just come, relax and chill out
- Make referrals to other services to provide additional/specialist support.
We also spend time raising awareness of the stress and responsibility young carers face on a daily basis. We do this by providing awareness training to agencies working with young people. We also deliver presentations and assemblies in schools to raise awareness among their peers.
