Barnardo's CareFree Young Carers Service

Our offer includes advocacy and service co-ordination to ensure young carers (under 18 years of age) get all the help and support they are entitled to:

  • one to one work eg. for anger management, self-esteem building, understanding health conditions
  • group work for time out, peer support and / or access to fun activities
  • inclusion work to build resilience and ensure young carers are able to engage in their communities and try out new opportunities and hobbies
  • support in school or college and / or help to get a job
  • grants eg. for school equipment or activities
  • access to holidays and residentials
  • emergency planning and access to the YC ID Card
  • support with transition in to adult services

We aim to have all work completed with the family in 2-6 months, however, group work may be ongoing.
