Young adult carers are aged 18-25 years and not only have a caring role which makes a significant impact on their life but also have to deal with transitioning from children's to adults services. The care is without payment and often at detriment to their own lives. Evidence shows caring is isolating, increases rates of truancy, bullying, poverty and a lack of opportunity. Can you help provide a support group where these young adults can come together to socialise, receive support, have time away from their caring responsibilities and simply act their age for a couple of hours?
