Why do YACs need specialist support?
As a young adult carer you might be juggling caring with further education or starting your career. It can be stressful to ask for time off when you’re starting out. Finding the confidence to ask about an organisation’s leave policy or a college’s housing system would challenge most 18 year olds.
Added to this, social care entitlements change radically when someone turns 18 and this can be a minefield to navigate.
So that’s why we have a team of extremely experienced people to work with carers aged 18-24 and help you take those steps into adulthood.
