Emotional support

Some of our young carers need extra support
to help them get out of the ‘crisis zone’

Emotional support is offered to our young carers who we feel would benefit from additional 1:2:1 time with a Support Worker. Sessions are arranged once every couple of weeks in the young carers school, and consist of the Support Worker and young carer talking about how they are feeling, why they feel that way, and how to manage those feelings.

We can also refer the young person to places and organisations where they can receive further support. Our Support Workers have received Mental Health First Aid for Youth training from Mental Health First Aid England. (Please note, this is not a counselling service).
