We understand that as a young carer you are taking on lots of extra responsibilities, which may leave you feeling stressed and drained. You may also have less spare time than other young people your age and find it difficult to participate in activities that you enjoy. Many young carers give up a great deal of their time to support their families and loved ones and help to change the lives of those around them for the better.
To ensure that you stay healthy and happy, we have a range of support available through young carer activities, groups, PWB (Personal Wellbeing Budget) and YouCan programmes.
The Carers' Hub runs a 6-week programme in schools to support young carers. The sessions are aimed at uniting young carers from all year groups and hopes to leave a supportive legacy, whilst addressing some important issues that young carers may face on a daily basis.

Our Young Carers Partners
The Carers' Hub works with a range of different partners to offer Young Carers restpite and time away from their caring role. These can include breaks away for a couple of days during school holidays, to a range of fun activity groups throughout the year.
