The Young Carers Service aims to provide -
- information and support to help young carers make informed choices.
- one to one sessions, normally a series of six, providing information and practical tips.
- an advocacy service to ensure young carers voices are heard.
- individual awards.
- a free newsletter called Chill.
There is great emphasis on young carers setting the agenda and having a voice on all key issues.
In addition, the service provides professionals (such as social workers, teachers and health staff) with advice, resources and training on young carers issues.
