Northamptonshire Young Carers Service exists to help promote the health and wellbeing of young carers and their families.
We will work to make sure young carers are identified and recognised within our local community and help to prevent them taking on more responsibility than they should or could cope with. We aim to help them reduce feelings of isolation. We understand that young carers are individuals in individual families and have different needs. We will allow young carers and their families a say in what our support will be with a focus on improving confidence and helping prevent the type of problems that young carer families may face.
We aim to promote an understanding of the balance needed between being a Carer and having an opportunity to have hopes and dreams that will in turn help young carers to fulfil their individual potential.
Carers Week gives us and other organisations the annual chance to raise awareness for Carers on a national level. It kicks-off 12th June so save the date, more information to follow. Read more
