Young Carers Support Work and Respite

Home | Case Studies | Young Carers Support Work and Respite

‘Jack’, who is 14, has been part of Young Carers for seven-years. He is carer for Mum, who has a range of long-term physical and mental health conditions and is also carer to a little sister who has epilepsy.

Jack has received all levels of support from the service including one-to-one sessions, day trips, residentials, funding, and much more. Recently, Jack has moved from a high level impact caring role to a lower level, as we have been able to establish (alongside other partner organisations) a consistent and supportive environment for Young Carers to thrive in.

Things at home had moved to the extreme, with Mum relapsing with alcohol misuse which had created a hostile home environment for Jack and his siblings.

Social work input highlighted the need for the Young Carers service to increase their support, to allow Jack respite opportunities away from home, whilst intensive work was completed with his mum.
