Do you help to look after someone with a disability or someone who is unwell?

Many children and young people do. We think you are amazing. 

 

Sometimes young people under 14 are called Young Carers and under 25 are called Young Adult Carers.

Looking after someone can help you develop a range of skills in caring, being organised, having empathy, handling difficulties. It can also feel great to help someone else.  We know it can also be challenging to support someone  whilst  juggling so many changes in your life such school / uni / work /friends / a social life, and just  how important it is to have someone that you can reach out to, to talk to.

 

We have a friendly team at WCD Young Carers that is here for you.  You can:

  • Chat to our outreach worker in your area about what is happening for you and any support you might need.

  • Join a young carer group or activities near you

  • Join online

  • Take part in trips and events

  • Get support to work with your school to overcome challenges with juggling caring and learning

  • Get support to work out how to go to university / get work when you look after someone

 

We also organise support groups and activities and can connect you with other young carers who are in similar situations.

Credu is here for you and will work with you to provide you with exactly the support that you need and want
