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.

Young Carers ID Card

Our ID Card (in partnership with WCD Young Carers and Action For Children) is recognised across North Wales and is available in a suite of options – card, wristband and app (coming soon)! The card is 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.

Click here for more information about the ID Card. Contact us to apply!
 
If you live in Denbighshire or Wrexham, WCD Young Carers will be able to help you with your ID Card application. Click here for more information.

WhatsApp Group

Our secondary school Young Carers have decided to create a WhatsApp group for peer support. To be part of the WhatsApp group Young Carers must use their own personal number and not a family members or friends. Our young carers have put rules together for the group – these rules will be available in the group description on WhatsApp and are outlined on the consent form below. There will be several moderators who will monitor the group. Please read and sign the consent form before we can add you to the group.

Events and activities

Young Carers will be accessing regular group-based sessions incorporating a wide range of activities. We will keep you informed you of these activities via direct contact, newsletter, and our social media platforms. If there are any activities that Young Carer does not wish to participate in, please make a note of these on the consent form or inform a member of the team. Thank 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.”

“Hi I’m Alice! I am here to support and help our Young Carers Team and you in your caring role.  When not in work I enjoy walking, running and Pilates.”
“Hi my name is Kel and I am very excited to be back working with Young Carers again! I am here, like the rest of the team, to offer help and support to you as a Young Carer. In my spare time I love crafting, reading  and generally making a mess along with walking my dog Ben!”

“Hi I’m Hayley! I’m the activity coordinator, I’m here to plan lots of fun activities and group sessions for you all! In my spare time I love being creative making various things and going on family days out.”
