A 3 year funded project which started in the summer of 2019.
Young Carers benefit from one to one emotional support and small therapeutic group work. Aiming to reduce negative feelings, build confidence and improve friendship.
The programme provides therapeutic groupwork and 1-1 support around young carers identified issues, to better prepare them to improve outcomes in adult life.
Young carers can be isolated and struggle with their emotions and confidence due to chaotic and sometimes uncertain home situations. Living in families with illness and disability can have a negative effect on their feelings and future prospects.
Young carers are supported to overcome barriers they face in achieving positive emotional wellbeing and reaching their full potential
