Young carers are defined as a child aged between 6-18 who cares for a family member they live with. Cheshire Young Carers helps to give them a childhood
Cheshire Young Carers support young carers across Cheshire in three key areas, school holiday respite programmes, individual & group support and working with schools/colleges to provide specialised support. Principally Cheshire Young Carers is funded by private donations.
“ Joining Cheshire Young Carers 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 Cheshire Young Carers my confidence had hit rock bottom and I wasn’t sure how I’d get on but working with Cheshire Young Carers 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. ”
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.Volunteer
