Young Carers


For carers aged 5 -25

Carmarthenshire Crossroads Young Carers is a dedicated project for Young and Young Adult Carers in Carmarthenshire providing support for 5 -25-year-olds, regardless of where they live in the county. You can get support through the CCYC project as well as have the opportunity to meet others of a similar age with shared experiences, so you don’t have to feel alone or isolated as many young and young adult carers do.

The project provides practical and emotional support, respite activities and peer group clubs/ meetings in the community to meet other young carers. These clubs/ meetups are located across the county.

The team of support workers meet with young and young adult carers at school, college, at home, or in the community for 1:2:1 support, and they team up with local organisations to make sure the young people are getting all the right support.

Support can include:

    • A dedicated key worker providing 1-2-1 support in your home or community
    • An individual action plan to help you to achieve positive changes in your life
    • Partnership working with other services who can help
    • Helping to liaise with education providers and employers to address any
    • Access to a peer support network of others your age facing similar issues
    • Activities, trips and events
    • Signposting and information services, including online resources
    • Life skills groups such as confidence building and health and well-being
