We know it isn’t easy being a Young Carer

We know you  may face many challenges but also that you often feel proud to be a Young Carer. We are here to listen:

  • You can talk to one of our support workers at the regular clubs and outings
  • You can ask for some one-to-one support and we can meet you at school or in the community
  • We can help you to talk to school or college if you are having problems
  • We can match you with a mentor who will meet with you weekly

The most important thing for you to know is that you are not alone.

If you are looking after somebody it can make you feel sad or worried sometimes and it may help to talk to somebody about how you feel. You may feel worried about lots of things such as:

  • ‘What will happen if they need me when I am at school?’   
  • ‘When will I find time to do my schoolwork?’
  • ‘What if they get worse?’
  • ‘Who can I ask for help?’
  • ‘Why can’t I ever just relax and see my friends?’
  • ‘Why do I get sad and angry sometimes?’

We can help you to find the answers to all of these questions and any others that you may have.

We can meet with you at school/college or at our centre to talk to you about your caring role and how it is making you feel.

We can place you with a mentor who will meet with you every week, after school and help you to talk about the things that you find a challenge and guide you to achieve some of your goals. Ask the Young Carers Team for more details.

To talk to somebody who understands call 020 83663677 or text or WhatsApp the EyPIC Team on 07809 332106.

We look forward to hearing from you.
