NEWCIS Young Carers (NYC)
Supporting all young carers in Flintshire
NEWCIS are delighted to announce that we will be providing support to Young Carers Service in Flintshire. NEWCIS now offer a seamless and ageless service for unpaid carers in Flintshire.
Are you a young carer?
A young carer is someone who looks after another person. Caring for someone might involve things you do every day like cooking and cleaning or you might have to do much more if your loved one can’t do some things themselves. A young carer might look after someone because they’re unwell, have a disability, a mental health issue or struggle with substance misuse.
What might a young carer do?
Young Carers ID Card
On the 16th March 2021 we officially launched our Young Carers ID Card in partnership with WCD Young Carers and Action For Children. Our ID Card will be recognised across North Wales and will be available in a suite of options – card, wristband and app (coming soon)! The YCID, or Young Carers ID card, is a simple card to help professionals including doctors, teachers and pharmacists to recognise you are a Young Carer which will help them give you the appropriate support you need and deserve.
We'll be organising lots of exciting activities and events - so you can meet new people, make friends and have fun!
How can NEWCIS help you?
Meet the team
“Hi, I’m Amy! I am lucky enough to say that I have been working with young carers since 2018, and have been able to share my love of craft, cake and outings with children and young people! Outside of work, life is spent exploring new places, and visiting family and friends.”
“Hi, I’m Katie! I’m here to make sure you’re getting on okay with your caring role, so please give me a shout if you need some help or want to chat! Outside of work, I like eating ALL of the chocolate and going on muddy dog walks.”

We will keep you informed you of these activities via direct contact, newsletter, and our social media platforms.
