Young Adult Carers

A young adult carer is someone aged between 18-25 who cares, unpaid, for someone who may be chronically ill, disabled, have a mental health condition or an addiction.

Young Adult Carers aim to establish a friendly and supportive network specifically for young adult carers with opportunities to come together to meet up, socialise and find out more about what’s available to young adults in Gateshead.

Young Adult Carers will continue to connect with colleges and universities and together we will approach workplaces speaking on behalf of young adult carers.

Young Adult Carers Wellbeing Facilitators will help you to understand the funding and services that are available to families here in Gateshead.

Young Adult Carers will arrange regular free meet-ups and trips out so our YACs can get to know other people who are in a similar situation.
