Young carers need proper support around them to make sure they’re able to care for their loved ones whilst taking care of their own physical and mental health, and working towards a bright and healthy future.
The new Young Carers Support app enables young and young adult carers in the UK to find information and advice, self-help resources, wellbeing tips and activities, plus a catalogue of support services – all in one place.
A number of young carer organisations worked with Expert Self Care Ltd, to launch the Young Carers Support app which is free and available for any young carer, or professional working with young carers to download on both Android and iOS.
Caring Together, Centre 33, Cambridgeshire County Council, Peterborough City Council and Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust (CPFT), have worked together to compile localised information for young carers in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough which is now available on the app.
The app offers clear and easily accessible advice and is a comprehensive resource for young carers and professionals working with young carers and young people.
The app carries the Patient Information Forum ‘PIF Tick’, the only UK quality mark for trustworthy health information.
It’s free and available for any young carer, or professional working with young carers to download on Android and iOS.
