At Caring Together we offer a range of activities for young carers and young adult carers.
These include sessions where you can socialise and get to know other carers who are your age, have some fun, develop new skills and make contributions to ‘carer voice’ work – your chance to raise awareness of carers and influence decisions that affect you.
So whether you are a young carer (aged under 18) or a young adult carer (aged up to 25) you can get involved.
Unless otherwise stated, activities are for carers aged 5-18 years old across Cambridgeshire, Peterborough and Norfolk. Some sessions are for young adult carers, aged 18-25. If you are a young adult carer you can also contact us to find out about other workshops and fun sessions we may have available to you.
