We provide 3 services for Young and Young Adult Carers
Young Carers Schools Project
This project is for young carers aged 5 - 25 and allows us to provide one to one support for young carers inside or outside of school. We provide emotional and practical support to allow young carers to manage their caring role alongside their education. We go in to primary and secondary schools to train staff, support schools to start a young carers group, deliver raising awareness sessions and assemblies and identify young carers champions within the school.
Young Carers Teen Club
We run a monthly group for young carers aged 13 - 18 at Bridgend Carers Centre. We offer training and skills workshops, fun activities and trips during the school holidays.
This project is for Young Adult Carers aged 14 - 25. We provide them with the support they need to manage their caring role alongside education or employment. We also run a monthly Young Adult Carer group for 16 - 25 year olds to have a break from their caring role and meet others in a similar situation.
