The difference we are making
View all case studies

Daniel recently started to attend our fortnightly respite groups after seeing our Young Carers Awareness Day campaign. He has attended groups since then, meeting up with friends from his school and striking up new friendships with fellow carers.

He currently receives one-to-one telephone support, which his mum has said is a “real boost” and is very grateful for this as it helps him talking to someone outside the family about his thoughts and feelings.
