Our young adult carer service supports carers between 16 and 25 years old living in Leeds caring for a friend or family member with an illness, disability or addiction. We provide one on one and group support sessions giving information, advice and emotional support.
If you are a young carer aged under 16, you can access support from Family Action.
We also run activities and trips to enable young adult carers to have a break and meet other young people who are caring. In previous years we’ve visited ITV studios, been to the North Yorkshire moors for outdoor pursuits and activities, had universities and colleges come and speak at our groups and we took a group to the rock ‘n’ roll pantomime in Leeds city centre.
New course – Carers Leeds have teamed up with iBme UK to bring you a new mindfulness course starting in Jan 2021. Take a look here.
