Did you know that an estimated 700,000 young carers are living in the UK?
You are not alone, and many other children and young people face some of the same challenges you are. We understand some of the ways that being a young carer can impact your day to day life:
- Maybe you're late to school sometimes
- You have to miss out on things
- You don't get all of your homework in on time
- You spend a lot of your day worrying about what's happening at home
Look, we get it.
Some of our team have been there too, so we understand that no situation is the same and all young carers have different needs.
We recognise how being a young carer can make your childhood a little or a lot different to your friends. We also recognise that being a young carer means you have an amazing set of skills that will help you throughout your lifetime.
We are here to make sure that you get the opportunities you deserve whether that be through training the staff at your school, giving you a break or helping you find work through our employability programme.
