Young Adult Carers - Kent

If you provide a caring role and are aged between 16 - 24 then you are a Young Adult Carer and can access specialist support from our Transitions Workers

The Young Adult Carer project aims to support young people aged 16 to 24 who are in a caring role by offering them specialist support and the opportunity to have a break from their caring role and meet others who are in a similar situation.

Carers FIRST runs social groups in Cranbrook, Tunbridge Wells, Tonbridge, Sevenoaks, Edenbridge, Dartford, Gravesend and Medway. We also run workshops to help young adults carers with their caring role and to ensure they are looking after their own health and wellbeing.

Throughout the year we hold celebration trips out which in the past have included Dreamland, Harry Potter World and the Escape Rooms.

We have built an excellent partnership with global insurance company HCC Tokio Marine who provide opportunities for young adult carers to visit their offices in central London and have a taste of working in the city.
In collaboration with young adult carers they have created a number of workshops which they deliver to young adult carers who access support from Carers FIRST. To find out more about one of our trips read more >>>
