Cheshire Young Carers


A young carer is a child or young person living with a parent or sibling with a disability and/or illness such as mental ill health, substance misuse and physical illness. This can impact on the young carer’s development, health and wellbeing.  

Cheshire Young Carers provide respite support for young carers during school holiday periods, plus a number of other events/activities between these periods.  The respite consists of day trips, local meetings packed with activities and residential experiences

Our free of charge Education Support Programme for young carers enables Cheshire East primary and secondary academies, schools and colleges identify and help young carers aged 6 to 18 years old to improve their participation and achievement in education.

CYC’s volunteer workforce provides an opportunity to make a real difference to young carers. Volunteers learn and develop new skills and have fun while inspiring young people by delivering a wide range of services from weekly group activities to mentoring programmes. 

Being a mentor for CYC is an amazing opportunity to make a difference to a young person. You can use your skills and experience to help a young person realise their potential and achieve their goals.
