The Young Carers Pilot Project is funded by Nottinghamshire County Council and will run in the Mansfield and Ashfield area of Nottinghamshire.
The project is being run alongside the existing Nottinghamshire Carers Hub.
Young Carers are most likely to provide care for a parent, grandparent, brother or sister, because that person has an illness or disability, mental health problem or problems with addiction to alcohol or drugs.
This project is for Young Carers who are under the age of 18.
The aim of the project is to increase the self-esteem of Young Carers, bring them in touch with their peers, reduce social isolation, gather their feedback on current services and get their ideas on how to shape future services.
This exciting project is providing support and activities to Young Carers via the following methods:
