Young Carers Support Worker

Young Carer Support Workers are at the forefront of our work with young carers. They run our clubs on weekday evenings and facilitate young carers drop-ins at local schools. Initial referrals go directly to them, they then work with the families to assess the impact of the young person’s caring role and together decide how best to support them. Support workers are best placed to support on progress at meetings with children’s services. The young carers each have a key worker who is their point of contact.
