Help for Young Carers in Halton

If you are a young carer you can access our fun day trips with other young carers or as part of your family, funding towards a break, group activities and confidence building courses.

Training

The ‘Caring with Confidence Course’ is a series of sessions to help make a positive difference to the lives of unpaid carers and the person they care for.

Forums

We hold regular Carers’ Forums, usually at the Select Stadium in Widnes to enable carers to meet other carers, professionals and our centre staff.

Counselling

We can refer registered carers to a counselling service in Halton to help you speak confidentially about your situation.

Emotional

In addition to the counselling service we provide opportunities for carers to talk through their concerns both individually and in group sessions.

Family

We can look at how caring roles impact on different family members and provide both one to one support to individuals and whole family support where it’s needed.

Day Trips

Carers can access a day trip to meet other carers and have a break from their caring role.

Support for Young Carers

Feel free to call the centre and speak to a member of our team for more information on the support we offer to young Carers. The causes of someone taking on caring responsibilities are varied. Many people with caring responsibilities often don’t see themselves as carers but rather as a parent, spouse, son, daughter, partner, friend or neighbour. Our Young Carers’ group meet fortnightly. The main aim of the group is to give young carers aged between 11 to 17 years old the opportunity to meet other young carers, our team, plan actvities and have fun!
