Action for Family Carers makes a positive difference to the lives of all Carers by providing valued, high quality support services in times of need. A Young Carer is someone between 5 and 18 years, who cares for someone in their family or household due to a disability, illness or drug/alcohol addiction. Our charity offers these young people support and respite in the form of a youth group during term time and days out during the school holidays. This opportunity will involve interacting with and supporting the young people in a variety of activities. These include organising games, sports, crafts and assistance with IT/homework. The groups are held during the school term and this club starts in September.

What skills do I need?

As a volunteer you would be expected to be empathetic, considerate and have a fun approach. In return you will be offered an interesting and rewarding experience, with ongoing training and development, in a supportive environment.
