|Funding will contribute towards their service supporting the mental health of young carers (YCs). This consists of one-to-one support for YCs identified as susceptible to low mental health, supplemented by Counselling for the most vulnerable.
The services are directed at the most vulnerable YCs, mainly aged 9-15. All have been identified as vulnerable to mental ill-health. Some have added trauma including parental substance use. Last year one-to-one support was offered to over 300 YCs, and around 10% of these were referred to Counselling.
