Young Carers

YMCA Swansea Young Carers Service provides support and information for young carers aged 8-18 in Swansea. With a holistic family approach to support, every young carer and their family involved in the service receives an in-depth assessment of needs which helps inform an action plan of support that intends to build resilience towards being a young carer.

We provide:

  • Assessment of needs
  • Information
  • Support
  • Advocacy
  • Signposting

A Young Carer is anyone under the age of 18 who is caring or is affected by caring, for a family member with mental health issues, physical disability, long term illness or alcohol and substance misuse issue.

If you are a young carer and would like support, please contact:
