Because members of the family usually have different needs, the Young Carers Service works with a lot of other organisations to increase the chance of getting the best possible support for the family. These may include: Schools, Colleges and Education Support e.g Education Welfare Officers, Educational Psychologists, Learning Mentors, Home School Liaison Officers, Connexions; Health (Doctors, Psychiatrists, School Nurses, CPN’s), Family Support, Young People’s Services, Leisure Services, Housing etc.
The services include:

  • Information and advice – including a newsletter sent out every half term;
  • Group sessions – weekly activities to give a break, social events, short projects to work on specific topics and opportunities to talk about how the service can be improved;
  • Advocacy – to give young carers and their families a louder voice;
  • Individual support – time to talk and to work on particular problems.
