If you care for someone and are aged between 16-30 years old, the Young Adult Carers Transition Project can support you in a number of ways:

Individual support

We offer one to one information, advice and support to young adult carers, whether you need advice on care packages, benefits, employment, education, training, volunteering and housing or just want someone to talk to.

Young Adult Carers Group

The group meets monthly on the first Wednesday of every month from 6pm-8pm. This is your chance to meet and talk to other Young Adult Carers in Redbridge. It's a very relaxed group and we often sit and have a chat or do different activities e.g. DVD night, wellbeing workshop.

Social Activities

We offer a range of different social activities such as going out for dinner, going to comedy clubs going to theme parks, day trips and creative activities.

Training and Self Development Courses

Various courses are arranged throughout the year either at our centre or through specialist providers. Previous workshops have included employability skills, budgeting, confidence building and lots of different creative workshops e.g. film making, music workshops.

Young Adult Carers Forum

We have a Young Adult Carers Forum which meets four times a year. This is your chance to have your say about different services locally and nationally. The forum will provide you with the opportunity to get your voice heard on issues surrounding young adult carers, whether it is health, education, access to services or other areas which affect carers. Your feedback will then be used to influence local practice and policy.

If you think this is something you would benefit from contact Kate Stewart at Redbridge Carers Support Service on 020 8514 6251 or email [email protected].

Young Adult Carers Training Course for Professionals

This training course is for all staff who work with young people and those providing frontline support to vulnerable young people and adults aged 14 - 30. If you work with someone who has physical or mental health difficulties, a learning disability, alcohol/substance misuse, is ill, frail or elderly, then it is likely they have a carer. This course will give participants the awareness and skills to identify young adult carers, support the carer in their caring role and also support them to have a life outside of caring.
