Siblings and Young Carers Group
Young carers are children and young people under the age of 18 who often take on practical and/or emotional caring responsibilities to look after one of their parents or a brother or sister.
The Young Carers Group can give children and young people opportunity to meet other young carers in an informal and enjoyable way, giving them a break and an opportunity to enjoy activities.
The Young Carers Group offers activity sessions with opportunity for children and young people to get to know others in similar situations, make friends and enjoy themselves.
The group undertakes activities that may be difficult to achieve at home, for example swimming, arts and crafts, going to the beach or wildlife trips.
The aim of the group is for young carers to have fun and to have a break, free from the added responsibilities at home. Young carers can also be supported if they wish to learn more about the disability or illness that affects their family.
If you know a child or young person that you think may benefit from being part of the Siblings and Young Carers Group, please contact the Children’s Social Care team who will provide more information.
