Young Adult Carers

Are you a young adult carer?

Our Young Adult Carers Service supports carers aged between 16-25. If you are looking after someone who is disabled, elderly, has a long term illness, a mental health condition, developmental disorder or issues with substance misuse then you may be a young adult carer.

The Young Adult Carers Service provides emotional support, opportunities for personal development, and peer support as well as short break provision. We can also offer support in areas such as financial advice and accessing flexible opportunities to combine education, training, volunteering or employment with your caring role.

We know that periods of change can be particularly difficult for young adult carers, and that young adult carers can feel like they have to choose between their future aspirations and caring for their family. To find out more about the transitions support we are able to offer please get in touch with us.

We are here to help in any way we can.
