Buckingham and Winslow Young Carers Youth Club YC2

We aim to provide a programme of events for young carers in the Buckingham and Winslow area aged between 7 and 18 years, to meet together to learn new skills, share experiences, develop social skills, encourage confidence and boost their own self-esteem away from the caring environment. We aim to achieve these objectives through a structured activity programme.

We offer one-to-one support and run specific support workshops including ones for young carers who have siblings with disabilities. We encourage young carers to actively contribute to the planning and running of the youth club. We sponsor leadership training and confidence building activities. We look to enhance the life chances of all young carers through our varied and wide-ranging activities, particularly focusing on increasing future job opportunities.
