Young Adult Carers (YAC) Service, 07/08/12 [W]

Action for Children and Carers Outreach Service are working in partnership to deliver a service for young adult carers (YACs) in Conwy. The project is aimed at providing support and information to carers aged 18-25, living in Conwy county and caring for someone with a chronic/deteriorating / long-term health condition or disability.

The service offers carers assessments and individual development plans which identify the support required to enable young adult carers to achieve their goals, helping them to pursue new education, training, volunteering or work opportunities or enabling them to remain in education, training or work.

It also provides group activities for peer support, life skills development and social and leisure opportunities.
