Supporting Young Carers Into Adulthood

Dedicated Support for Young Adult Carers

Carers who are the ages of 16 to 25 years often have a lot in common and may find themselves struggling with common issues. Changes in circumstance 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
  • Pathways Forum
  • Become a pathways Ambassador
  • Workshops & Training
  • Respite Activities
