General information

Service offered: Young Carers are a vulnerable and unrecognised group in society who can suffer low self esteem due to feeling different from their peers. They can be socially isolated due to very little leisure time to be able to enjoy and achieve and they are often tired and worried. Their caring role may have a negative impact on their attendance at school and their academic achievement and can affect their lives both physically and emotionally. The purpose of our Charity is to alleviate the stress placed on young people and their families, whose lives are significantly affected by the impact of caring for a parent, child or relative. The Charity ensures that we adopt a whole family approach.
