There are two similar ways a young adult carer might register with us - depending on your age.
If you're over 16 and under 18, you'll be registered as a young carer - probably by Lucie, our Transition and Independence team member. This means you'll meet her (usually at your school or college) and have a chat about what your caring role is. She'll then arrange a home visit with your parent/guardian to have a chat with them and sign a few consent documents so you can register (things like permission to go on trips, have social media photographs taken etc). You'll then be able to take advantage of everything we offer for your age group including information, advice, regular school drop-ins, and attending both young carer (older group) and young adult carer (Inbetweeners) social activities - trips, events, training and lots more.
If you are over 18 and under 25, you'll be registered as an adult carer, and we don't need your parents' permission. You'll first have a chat over the phone with one of our friendly Wellbeing Checkpoint team members - Linda or Isam - about what you do as a carer, and any worries you've got about what you do. Once you've decided you want to register, you'll be sent an introductory Welcome pack and also we'll pass your details on to Lucie and she will be in touch with you about getting involved with our young adult carers group activities through Inbetweeners.
It's as easy as that!
Call 01952 240209 and ask for Lucie, Linda or Isam
