One to one support is provided to young carers whose caring responsibilities have a significant impact on them. It allows young carers to speak to staff about any issues worrying them i.e. school, their caring role, family/friend issues. It may focus on a particular outcome that the young carer is working towards, or any number of things. 1:1 support is scheduled depending on needs and working towards goals for the young person.
Family support – in some cases the Young Carers staff will work with families to identify and connect with other services that may be able to support them.
