Supporting Young Carers

Dedicated Support for Young Adult Carers

Carers who are between 16 and 25 may have been in a caring role for a large part of their life.  Changes in their own lives may trigger the need for specific support and advice, for example:

  • When a young carer moves from school to further education, employment or training
  • The young carer might want to leave home
  • Considerations around finance
  • Decisions around changes to their caring role to think about
  • Their rights and needs as a carer and as an individual
  • Introduction to adult support networks
  • Planning how they would like to live their lives

Carers have the chance to discuss their needs on a 1-2-1 basis and can also be supported through:

  • Social Groups
  • Workshops & Training
  • Respite Activities
