Are you a young person aged between 8-19 years and caring for someone at home? If you are, then the Young Carers Service can help.
About the Young Carers' Service
The Young Carers Service runs clubs across East Sussex. The clubs can provide you with the opportunity to have fun, and make new friends in a safe and supportive environment.
1-2-1 support is available if you are involved in substantial care and are perhaps struggling to cope. A support worker will work with you to identify areas of your life that you need help with.
Support can include:
- Working with your family and other agencies to reduce your caring role.
- Working with your school to increase understanding of your needs as a carer.
- Giving you time to talk through any worries and concerns and to look at possible solutions.
The Service also offers trips, activities and residential short breaks, where funding allows. Past events have included bowling, swimming, picnics, laserquest, residential at Bowles Activity Centre and the Young Carers Festival in Southampton.
