Young Carers work holistically alongside other family services and we can provide you and your family with different levels of support.
Oldham Young Carers define a young carer as: 'A child or young person who, without payment, provides help or support to a parent, sibling or other family member, who could not manage without their help. This could be due to age, physical or mental illness, addiction or disability.'
Our keyworkers provide a range of diversionary activities both during term time and during the holidays. We also provide one to one support to all young carers when needed.
We provide a range of activiites such as cooking, arts and crafts, games and information sessions that are relevant to our young people. We also work with local organisations to provide opportunities such as volunteering.
During the holidays we have facilitated trips to places such as Drayton Manor, canoeing, bowling, go-karting, laserquest, Knowsley Safari Park, Blue Planet Aquarium, roller-skating and many more.
