Make the 'Diff
A Young Carer provides “Caring” in many different ways, including doing housework, washing, dressing, providing medication, cooking and providing emotional support. They could be caring for a family member who could be chronically ill, physical and mental disability or drug and alcohol abuse . Being a Young Carer it can lead to a restricted childhood, poor access to education, being bullied and excessive emotional stress.
Cardiff YMCA “TIME 4 ME” Young Carers Project provides support for over 200 young carers throughout the Cardiff area and looks to give them a break from being Young Carers and the opportunity to have normal childhood experiences; a chance to meet other Young Carers; make new friends & have some fun!
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Young Carers can often feel isolated and vulnerable, "Time 4 Me" looks to improve their lives and support them in their role as a carer and help them gain access to many things which other children and young people enjoy.
Steps to get it done:
Cardiff YMCA also works in tackling disadvantage in communities throughout Cardiff in Youth work, C-Card & Sexual Health, Community support and accommodating and supporting homeless people throughout the area as well as Young Carers.
