Does someone at home have a mental health, physical or learning disability, long term condition or are suffering the effects of drug or alcohol misuse? This might mean that any children in the home carry out additional tasks to support the affected parent or sibling. Young carers often struggle with a number of difficulties which may be at school or with relationships.
CHUMS offers ongoing emotional support to young carers to help them in their caring role. We offer group support both in school and in the community giving an opportunity for children and young people to talk to each other, socialise and have fun. Please get in touch with Alex Dencheva at CHUMS on 01525 863924 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like any further information.
