At Carers Support Centre (CSC) we provide a wide range of information, advice and support services for unpaid carers of all ages. Our Young Carers Service provides help and support to children and young people, their families, and professionals.
Young carers are children and young people, aged 8-18, who look after someone in their family who may have a disability, long-term illness, or be affected by mental ill health or substance misuse.
Young carers may look after parents, care for a brother or sister, or another family member; taking on adult level responsibilities, which can impact on their own health, wellbeing, education and result in them becoming social isolated.
We are currently looking to recruit Sessional team members, to assist during staff absences and peak periods. Our team here is very supportive, dynamic, creative and work hard to ensure that young carers are identified, have access to appropriate support and fulfil their potential. You too could be part of this!

• providing individual tailored 1:1 support, and advocacy
