What We OfferWhat We Offer

One-to-one support

One-to-one support with an experienced member of our team allows the young carer to share any concerns they may be having in confidence, and receive guidance and support to assist them in coping with their caring role.

Young Carer Groups

We currently offer monthly groups for two age groups over 12s and under 12s. These groups offer young carers a chance to make new friends and to get a break from their caring responsibilities at home. The groups will consist of organised activities, discussions, and a chance to meet other young carers, and have some fun.

Training Sessions

We regularly offer training sessions for young carers who are registered with us. We include training sessions that have been suggested by young carers in our training programme. Training can include such topics as anger management, first aid or fire safety. These training sessions aim to help young carers develop skills, confidence or try new things. If young carers have any ideas for future training courses, they can let any young carers worker know.

Residential Breaks and Day Trips

From time to time we are able to offer young carers the chance to get away for a few days, in a group if their home situation allows. This allows the young carers to have time away from home, to try new things, and have some fun. We also organise one-off day trips during school holidays for young carers.

Young Carers' Newsletter

Some Young Carers may feel that they do not want or need regular support from the Young Carers Worker, through one to one support or group activities. In these cases the Young Carer will receive our newsletter every 3 months containing news about activities and events, as well as other useful information for young carers.

Schools' Work

Currently one of the young carers workers visit schools throughout Angus to talk to first year classes or assemblies to raise awareness of young carers, some of the problems they may face and how the young carers service can support young carers.
