Shropshire Young Carers Service

The Young Carers Service (Shropshire) supports young people aged between five and 18 years old who are carers for a family member who is ill, disabled, suffers with mental health difficulties or has alcohol/drug related issues.

The service offers:

  • Peer support
  • Respite opportunities
  • Fun activities such as arts, music, sports and trips
  • 1:1 support from young carers in a similar situation
  • A chance to make a difference to other young carers
  • A chance to relax, have a break and have fun.

Groups are held monthly at various locations around Shropshire.
