Short Breaks

Lisa is the Short Breaks Broker for The Ferry locality.

A short break can give carers

  • A break from their caring role
  • Something to look forward to
  • Some time to themselves

Young Carer Support in Schools

Julie also works closely with schools across The Ferry to ensure that young carers are identified and supported within their educational setting.

A named Young Carer Coordinator and Dundee Carers Centre Support Worker is linked to each school and can offer practical and emotional support to young carers and families.  Young Carers Ambassadors within some secondary schools can offer emotional and peer support to young carers.
