Young carers service
Herefordshire Worcestershire and Shropshire
The British Red Cross young carers project was established in 2000 within Shropshire to support young people aged 5 – 18 years. Since 2009 it has been part-funded by the Big Lottery Fund, who donated £310,270 to the project.
The project supports young people from 5 years of age up to the age of 18 who provide a caring role for a family member who is ill, disabled, suffers with mental health difficulties or has alcohol/ drug related issues.
The aim of the project is to give young carers an opportunity to take a break from their responsibilities at home and have some time out to enjoy a variety of activities such as arts, crafts, music, sports activities and trips. Young carers also have access to advice and support.
The young carers project is organised into five areas; Bridgnorth, Ludlow, Oswestry, Market Drayton and Shrewsbury which meet every month in a variety of settings.
