Heads Up 17 March 2023


Warwickshire County Council takes time for Young Carers On Young Carers Action Day 2023

Wednesday 15th March 2023 marks the start of Young Carers Action Day 2023. The theme this year is ‘Make Time for Young Carers’.  

For many young carers, downtime is not an option as they take on additional responsibilities. This often means having to help around the house with tasks such as helping to dress young siblings, cook, clean for the family  help siblings with homework, or even providing emotional support to family members.   

Young Carers Caring Together Warwickshire (Young Carer CTW) has targeted support that can help with every aspect of a young carer's life.  

In addition to an assessment that will help with assistance for both the young carer as well as the cared for, there is also support with the following:  

  • Provide information and advice about every aspect of caring for young people
  • Arrange groups and activities to meet other young carers
  • Help you with your educations aspirations (college, university) and next steps 
  • Provide one-to-one emotional support in a safe place 
  • Help you to access support to look after your health and wellbeing
