Worcestershire Young Carers Support
Worcestershire Young Carers Transitions Service
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
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
