Cheshire Young Carers, by Mrs Muddy

Date: 7th Jul 2023 @ 2:46pm

A young carer is a child aged 6 to 18 who carries out activities that can be defined as “providing care” for a parent/guardian or sibling. Many of them do not qualify for any kind of statutory support. The carer role they undertake can range from occasionally looking after a sibling to supporting an adult with medical interventions, general housework, preparing meals and generally running the household. 

Please find below a leaflet which has information on the support offered by Cheshire Young Carers. Click on the links below for more information about their holiday programmes.
