Young adult carers
Thanks to funding from the Cooperative our Young Adult Carers' Project has been up and running since March 2014.
We support people aged 16 – 25 living in Kingston or caring for someone who does. Caring can come in many forms; taking a brother or sister to school, going to hospital appointments with someone, translating, doing the housework, making sure someone in the family takes their medication, being someone’s person to talk to... These are just some examples of the ways Kingston’s young adult carers are supporting someone they know.
By offering support at a time of transition to adulthood we aim to help young adult carers achieve their potential.
