Could you take young people from various parts of the area to groups for social activities after school, weekends or in the school holidays?
Young carers do not have the same opportunities as other young people due to their caring role. This can be caring for a parent with physical/mental health problems, alcohol/drugs/substance misuse. Caring can also be, where a parent has had to spend a lot of time with a child in the family that requires extra attention, examples of this could be having ADHD, Autism, physical disabilities or learning difficulties. Helping to care for a brother or sister can leave a young person feeling left out and confused as to why they do not get the same amount of attention. This can often lead on to a young person resenting their brother or sister.
