Young Carers service


The Cheshire West and Chester Young Carers service, provided by Cheshire Young Carers, supports children and young people aged eight to 18 living with a family member who may have any of the following.

  • Mental ill health
  • Substance misuse
  • Learning disabilities
  • Physical ill health
  • Physical disability

The service aims to:

  • support young carers with their emotional health and wellbeing
  • develop young carers to be better equipped with the life skills and resilience they need
  • give young carers a strong voice to be heard
  • support young carers with their education, career choices or aspirations
  • help young carers care for themselves and show them ways or places they can go to do this.

Alongside one-to-one support, the service provides group sessions so young carers can engage with people in a similar position to them.

Cheshire West and Chester Council commissions this service to support young carers across west Cheshire.
