Eastleigh Young Carers Project offers flexible support for any young person 8 -18 years old within the Eastleigh Borough whose life is significantly affected by caring for a family member, like a parent or a sibling, who has an illness, disability, mental health or substance misuse problem.
The project gives young carers the opportunity to meet others in a similar situation, take some well-deserved time off, and have lots of fun. We aim to empower young people and provide them with positive experiences in a safe and fun environment where they are free to be themselves.
We run two projects for Young Carers:
The Project offers regular activity nights throughout the Borough of Eastleigh, day and residential trips, life skill sessions, one to one support, mentoring and much more.
We are working with schools to provide regular support networks for young carers.
