Our young carers offer

About our young carers offer

Young carers award

In October 2022 our Early Help Plus Team, who lead on our Young Carers offer, won the Children’s Champion Award at the National Children and Young People Awards, in recognition of our offer and support to young carers.

Our offer is available to all young carers registered with us, including the many fun events, activities, and trips we arrange! 

Once you're registered you'll receive regular email bulletins, telling you all about the activities, groups, and offers that are on. You can then book on to the events using the links in the bulletin.

Register today.

Book club

Join our book clubs called Chatterbooks. For free books and activities like drawing workshops and author signings, in libraries across Central Bedfordshire.

Monthly meetups

Young carers in go-karts

We hold monthly young carers groups with fun activities and time for you to meet other young carers, with a wellbeing practitioner attending each group. There are opportunities to talk one to one with adults there if you want to. You could use this time to talk about how you are feeling, things you want support with, or anything you feel would be helpful.

Have your say

We have regular Young Carers Voice groups, which is a chance for you to ‘have your say’ about issues affecting young carers and help us to develop our young carers offer.

Regular updates for parents

Monthly young carers leaflets are emailed to parents and carers with information about what activities you can join, how to book on to them, and advice on how to ask for support.

One-to-one support

We offer one-to-one support when needed.
