The Worcestershire Young Carers team, within YSS, has a senior key worker, 3 members of staff and volunteers. The team provides much needed support and understanding and assistance to raise young carers self esteem and confidence. It can provide help to express their frustrations in a positive way.
But more importantly…..
We give them the time and space to have fun and mix with other carers who understand what they do every day of their lives. For a few hours at least they can switch off from their caring roles and just concentrate on and enjoy being young people.
We usually work with children and young people and we can offer a service to young carers age 7 to 24 years inclusive.
