  • There is a chatroom every Thursday night from 7.00-8.00pm on the www.carers.org website specifically for young adult carers to meet with others their own age. It is aimed at anyone who is 18-25.
  • Aged 16 or 17? We realise that this is a time when you may be making decisions about your future. You may be thinking about whether to stay in education, work, undertake training or whether to take a gap year. Making such decisions is not always easy and, as a young carer, you may have greater concerns or more to consider, than other young people.
  • If you would like to meet with one of the Young Carers Team to discuss any issues about your future or about your caring role in general, please contact us on Freephone 0800 015 7700 and we will arrange a convenient time to meet you.

 

We also have a booklet called “entering adulthood?” that addresses some of the issues faced by young people of your age and gives contact details of other organisations that offer information, support or advice. If you would like a copy, please contact us.
