We are looking for an enthusiastic, dynamic and adaptable individual who is passionate about providing excellent social support and the delivery of clean safe care.

The services differ according to local need and provision but include direct work with young people and their parents providing:

  • Advocacy on behalf of the young carer and their family e.g. with housing, social care services
  • Information e.g. about a parent’s illness or disability
  • Support with any issues at school
  • Workshops run in partnership with further education organisations focusing on career opportunities
  • A listening ear and arranging counselling if needed
  • Group work, regular clubs or individual work depending on what each child/young person needs e.g. chill out groups, theatre groups
  • Activities with other young carers or children and young people in the community to give them a break and have fun, e.g. canoeing, pond-dipping, cinema visits
  • Chances to have new experiences, learn new skills and be involved in how the service is run, e.g. trips during Easter and summer holidays; and including whole family activities to strengthen family relationships
  • Structured time limited child or young people and family sessions
  • Programmes designed to develop self esteem and reduce the impact of the caring role on emotional wellbeing
  • Peer mentoring
