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?

  • Practical tasks, such as cooking, housework and shopping
  • Physical care, such as helping someone out of bed
  • Emotional support, such as talking to someone who is distressed
  • Personal care, such as helping someone dress
  • Collecting prescriptions and helping to give medicine
  • Helping someone communicate
  • Looking after brothers and sisters

We'll be organising lots of exciting activities and events - so you can meet new people, make friends and have fun!

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.”
