Opportunities for young adult carers

24th March 21

We know that the easing of lockdown and restrictions may be really good news for lots of young adult carers, but we also know that it might cause some to be anxious.

Colleges and universities are re-opening, you may have changes at work and other areas of life are opening up.

So, we are putting on extra support for young adult carers to give you someone to talk to and a break for from your caring role between now and May. You can benefit from:

  • Telephone calls to check how you’re doing.
  • Socially distanced walks.
  • Meet-ups with other young adult carers (when, and in ways COVID-19 restrictions allow).
  • Virtual get-togethers for young adult carers like quiz nights and wellbeing sessions.

We are also here help you to access employability support such as mock interviews and help with putting together a strong CV or job applications.

We will also work with colleges, universities, and training providers to raise awareness of young adult carers and what they can each do to support their young adult carers.

If you are a young adult carer aged 16-25, please email [email protected], call 0345 241 0954 or text 07843 327336.

We are also able to put young adult carers in contact with the providers of other commissioned services in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough – Centre 33 and Making Space.
