Working with Young Carers
These were research and engagement projects with young carers from B&NES.
Working with Young Carers engaged with participants who were experiencing multiple hardships, challenges and issues in their lives due to their caring roles. Their caring responsibilities could include helping with practical chores, medical needs, financial responsibilities and emotional support. These responsibilities meant these young people could have less time to develop, relax and explore their creativity. The projects were led by a steering group of young carers, working closely with Off the Record. Funding was channeled into six projects in B&NES, specifically Bath, Keynsham, Radstock and Timsbury.
“We’ve spent all our lives looking for something, who we are & what makes us. This journey has allowed us to do just that”
