How we support young adult carers

We can offer you

  • Events – Day trips out and evening social activities to give you a break from your caring role and an opportunity to meet other young adult carers
  • One to one support – a chance to have a chat, let off some steam and get any advice and support you need in relation to your caring role
  • Opportunities to get your voice heard – A chance to speak about the issues that affect you as a carer through forums like the Young Carers Revolution. This is your opportunity to let those in power know what needs to be changed in order to make a real difference to carers. On the right is a video made with Carers Trust as part of the ‘Time to be Heard’ campaign, featuring some of the carers we support.

We also offer

  • Carers Emergency Card – a card you can carry with you so you don’t have to worry about what will happen to the person you look after if you have an emergency situation.
  • Discounts at businesses in York
  • Employment, education and training advice – for example, help to develop your CV.
