We Believe in Young & Adult Carers

Get in touch for a warm welcome 

Do you look after a family member or a friend?

Then you matter too!

We listen to you, because each person and their circumstances are unique. We support unpaid and family carers of all ages in Ceredigion.

 

Some examples of the way Carers get support include:

  • Having someone to talk to who will listen and help work out a way forward

  • Accessing the right information – to make informed choices

  • Connecting with groups, activities, trips, other services organisations

  • Getting a break - replacement care (adult carers), activities and trips (young carers) or other ways of having a break

  • Supporting a life alongside caring - with education, work, social opportunities, health and wellbeing

  • Skills and training - for your caring role, for your own wellbeing and aspirations

  • Voice and influence - supporting carers to have their voices heard and to influence the organisations and services they use.

  • Counselling - free service for over 18s provided by volunteers

  • Funding - help to access grants, funding and benefits

  • Support with Hospital discharge, preparing for someone to come home from hospital and a new or changed caring role

Am I a Carer?

If you look after a family member of friend who is unwell or disabled, then you are a Carer. This might be your child / spouse / parent or other relative / friend. Carers are important to families and communities, which can be both rewarding and challenging in all sorts of ways, both practical and emotional.

 

We think Carers are amazing. We love to listen to you and support you with what is important to you in a way that works for you, whether you just need some basic information or if you want to work through some complicated challenges.

Young Carers / Young Adult Carers

A young carer is someone who supports or helps to look after someone with a disability or someone who is unwell. 

We have a friendly team at Ceredigion that is there to provide you with information and guidance, to support you, to offer to represent you or speak on your behalf if you need help (for example with school) or to just listen to you and understand your situation. 

 

We understand how challenging it can be to support someone  whilst juggling so many changes in your life such as school /friends / social life, and just how important it is to have someone that you can reach out to to talk to or go to for help or advice.

 

We also organise support groups and activities and can connect you with other young carers who are in similar situations.

 

Ceredigion is here for you and will work with you to provide you with exactly the support that you need and want.

The Young Carer ID Card is for Young Carers.

A Young Carer is someone who helps to look after a friend or family member who cannot manage on their own because they have a disability, physical or mental illness or are affected by substance or alcohol misuse.

You can apply for the Young Carer ID Card if you or the person that you care for lives in Ceredigion.
