St Helens Young Carers
How can the young carer’s team support you?
Our young carer team is made up of family support officers, an outreach worker and activities coordinator and our service manager.
Family support officers work with our families and young carer’s to offer a package of support whether this is big or small with the aim to reduce the caring role of our young carers. We will work with you step by step by liaising with other professionals and school’s to coordinate and advocate ensuring you are supported in your caring role. The family support officers can help to make any referrals or sign post you to agencies and services that also may be able to help.
The Young carers Outreach officer works with school staff and other agencies so that they are more aware of Young Carers and what they do and how they can play their part to support and help them.
The Activities Co-Ordinator is responsible for organising and planning all of our respite activities and sessions and will be there when you attend your respite with us!
