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