Young Carers can miss out on schooling, social events or normal activities due to their role, which may involve helping their dependant to wash, take a bath or shower, go to the toilet, go shopping, cook or do laundry.

Young Carers Club

The Young Carers Club provides additional support and "time out" for young people aged from 8-19 years who have a caring role at home.    

The Club meets fortnightly at the Walter Boyce Centre and provides a meeting place for young carers to meet with others in a similar situation. A range of activities is provided including:
