Carol and Gillian are our Young Carers’ targeted support workers and responsible for the wellbeing project which supports young carers from families where there are complex needs and/or a lack of support to family members. The aims of the project are for young carers to develop skills to build their resilience, to reduce isolation and to protect young carers from any excessive or inappropriate levels of caring.

Carol and Gillian will work with young carers individually and in small groups as well as attending some of the regular activities e.g. Drop Ins. They will follow a whole family approach, taking the needs of the entire family into account and will provide information, advocacy and signposting/referral to other services for any of the young carers’ family members who may also be in need of support.
