Young Carers Wish Listgraffiti work carers challenge 2009 070

In the summer of 2016, young carers at the project were surveyed for their views and opinions.  Part of this consultation process asked young carers what their top wishes were.  The most popular replies were:

  • Group activities and peer support, more YCP project work
  • Teachers and peers to know about young carers
  • Planning for leaving home
  • Counselling support and to be less stressed and more confident
  • Awareness across all professions in contact with me and my family and more support/help with the caring role
  • To be included in planning support and care packages for the cared-for person
  • More social opportunities with my friends and chances to do fun things
  • More chances to do things together as a family and more money
  • Having more space/privacy/freedom
  • The cared for person being better
