What our service offers

What our service offers

Confidential support, advice and a listening ear to Young Carers in Orkney and their families.

Free monthly activity sessions for Young Carers to meet, relax and have fun to give them a break from caring, help them to gain confidence and encourage them to socialise and to support each other.  

Although not our main focus, the service inadvertenly provides some respite to parents while Young Carers attend sessions.

An assessment of the Young Carers needs.

One to one support for Young Carers who either need additional suport or do not feel comfortable in a group situation.  

We can also refer Young Carers on to more specialised support with a counsellor if needs be.
