More About The Organisation

Organisation Details

About Us

Children and young people who do a lot to help look after a member of their family are often called young carers. Looking after someone can make you feel good, but it can also make you worry and feel stressed out. Being a young carer sometimes makes things tougher at school too. You might have to take care of your brothers and sisters or help the person you look after so you don't get much time for homework, going out or being with your friends.

If you are aged between 5-17, the Carers’ Centre offers activities, breaks and well-being support groups to make sure you meet new young carers, try something new and get the support that you need. Our school holiday activities are varied to suit all interests and include residential breaks too! Our groups, iCare and Positive Penguins, can help Young Carers' build resilience and become aware of their feelings and emotions.
