Young Adult Carers

What is a Young Adult Carer?

You are a Young Adult Carer if you are a young person aged 16-25 providing unwaged support to family or friends who could not manage without your help.

This could be caring for a relative, partner or friend who is ill, frail, disabled or has mental health problems or substance addictions problems.


Our Young Adult Carers Project offers:

  • Support with your caring role
  • Fun social events, activities and workshops
  • Access to grants, benefits and money advice
  • Volunteering opportunities
  • Creative workshops and training sessions
  • One-to-one coaching to help you think about your future
  • The opportunity to make new friends and talk to others who understand
  • YACS Leaflet


If you are a Young Adult Carer and looking for information, advice, support or a little time for yourself please do get in touch.
