Worcestershire Young Carers Support

Worcestershire Young Carers Transitions Service

Carers Unit logoThe Young Carers has now been extended to include those Young Carers in transition aged between 16 and 24. The Young Carers service previously offered services to young carers which ended when they reached their 19th birthday and they were referred to the adult carers service which many failed to access as they did not feel it met their needs. It was recognised that these young adults have specific needs and this resulted in the transitions pilot service being set up. 

The transitions service offers 1-1 support with education, employment and training being the focus.  We also provide support with a range of needs including emotional support, help with referrals to other services/agencies and support to access these services. We also hold a six weekly consultation group.

Referrals are received from many sources including the Access Centre, GP’s, colleges, health etc. and we are also happy to receive self referrals, which can be made to the Transitions Key Worker.

If you would like to make a referral or more details contact 01299 252320 or email youngcarers@yss.org.uk
