Young carers often have a good idea about what would make their lives easier. It could be an item to help with studying or staying in contact with friends and family, something to make tasks at home easier, or even a club or group that they would like to join. Our service can explore this with young carers and their families and help them to decide what would be most beneficial. We provide a Young Carer Wellbeing Fund on behalf of Gateshead Council that enables the young carer to purchase a break or item that somehow relieves the caring role.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, it has become especially important for young carers to find ways to stay connected, access services online, keep up with education, and look after their health. The Wellbeing Fund is one way that we can help.
