Crossroads Together - Young Carers

Description:

A young carer is someone under 18 who helps look after someone in their family, or a friend, who is ill, disabled, has mental health issues or misuses drugs or alcohol.

The aim of the Shropshire young carers project is to identify, assist and support young carers from the area of Shropshire, to provide them with regular short breaks from their caring responsibilities and enable them to have increased participation in youth activities with their peers. Breaks include fun activities such as arts, music, sports and day trips.

The groups give young carers a chance to talk to one another about their life as a young carer and share their experiences. One-to-one sessions offer young carers a chance to talk about how things are going at home giving us an opportunity to identify if further support may be needed.
