Supporting children who care for others

A young carer is defined as a young person between 6-18 years old who cares for either an adult (usually a parent) or a sibling. Our mission is to support them.

About us

Cheshire Young Carers support young carers across Cheshire in three key areas, school holiday respite programmes, individual & group support where necessary plus working with schools/colleges to provide specialised support where required. Principally Cheshire Young Carers is funded by private donations.


“ Joining CYC as a volunteer in May of last year has enabled me to rebuild the confidence I’d felt I had lost in supporting young people. When I started with CYC my confidence had hit rock bottom and I wasn’t sure how I’d get on but working with CYC and the young carers has given me back some of that confidence I’d lost as well as being an absolute joy to support you all with what you do so thank you. ”

Working together we change lives

Volunteers are at the heart of what we do – they are the glue that keep our sessions running and our events for young carers possible. The dedicated support they provide us with gives us the chance to make some wonderful things happen for young carers.

“ The partnership between Cheshire Young Carers and M&S Bank has truly been mutually beneficial. A number of our employees have really got behind the service and collectively raising over £20,000. Not only do these activities raise the visibility of our ‘community’ efforts, and therefore support our mission to be a ‘Great Place to Work’ but it also provides great teambuilding opportunities for those who get involved in planning and running the events. ”

“ My son attends young carers and I have to say what an absolute amazing charity this is, it gives the young carers some fantastic opportunities which they may never have had experienced without the charity. Hats off to all the staff they are all welcoming and caring towards the young carers and it's them that make the charity and of course all the lovely kind donations ”
