Young Carers

Carers Aged 8-16 (or up to 18 if still in education)

Young carers can sometimes put the needs of the person they care for before their own, and this means that they can sometimes miss out on things that other young people get to do.

This can also mean that young carers can experience stress, anxiety and worry about the person they care for, and may need help or support from other people from time to time.

We offer the same support to young carers as we do to all carers including practical, emotional and peer support and also a variety of groups and activities.

Carers of Dundee website also has information on other carer support organisations across Dundee, along with further information on young carers and young carers rights.

These groups help emotionally to get through the hard times, you can relax and share your feelings with new friends I have in the group.
