Be Free Young Carers is introducing a brand-new initiative just for our teenage young carers. This virtual youth group will use social media to engage our 13 and over young carers, and target their specific needs. Our Support Workers will share exam tips, mental health resources and other advice for our teenage young carers to give them a supportive community. Young Carers can also ask questions to other teenage young carers and share their experiences.
The group, which is carefully monitored and all involved follow a strict code of conduct, will also have meet-ups to give our teenage young carers time to relax and talk to each other after school.
