Action for Children Young Adults Carers Service

Action For Children are launching a new service for young adults in a caring role. The Young Adult Carers Service will be running throughout the 5 trust areas for any young person between 18-25 in a caring role. We will be delivering services in a range of formats including one to ones, group work, information sessions and much more, all of which will be planned and organised following consultation with the young adult carers themselves. We are keen to hear from the estimated 30,000 active young adult carers in Northern Ireland and would encourage them to get in touch to help us shape the service and to challenge any pre conceived ideas of the type of service a young adult carer may want to be part of. We accept referrals from family members, social workers, health professionals, teachers, tutors, voluntary sector professionals and young adult carers themselves. For more information about the practical and emotional support we offer young adult carers, or to make a referral, please contact:
