Young Adult Carers (aged 16 – 25)

Young Adult Carers are aged 16-25 and provide unpaid care to a family member or friend. Being a Young Adult Carer can be a challenge. Many Young Adult Carers are juggling School, College, University, work, friendships, relationships and caring for children alongside their caring role

Meet other young adult Carers and spend a little time doing something enjoyable for yourself. We can help arrange respite care and transport to enable you to attend any of these activities, just let us know what you need when you book a place.

If you are a Young Adult Carer and would like to know more about our support or any of our training or activities, please contact 01304 364637 or email: yac@carers-doverdistrict.org
