Professionals and organisations
If you work in the care sector, either for a statutory service or another 3rd sector organisation and meet a young carer who you think could potentially benefit from our support then don’t hesitate to make direct contact with us.
A young carer is a young person aged 6-18 who has a caring role, usually an adult family member or a sibling. This caring role often has a significant impact on their emotional wellbeing, their attainment at school and can often impact on their behaviour.
Cheshire Young Carers provide respite for these children, works to build their self-confidence, improve their experience at school to encourage better academic attainment and generally provide a break from their caring role.
If you want an informal chat or to refer a young carer into our service these are the ways to contact us;
