Individual Time

If you would like to have some time on your own with a young carers worker we offer one to one support.  During a one to one session you can talk about anything that might be on your mind or worrying you.  The sessions can take place wherever you feel comfortable.  Everything you talk about will be treated confidentially but if the worker is worried about your safety, we may need to get you some help - we would always talk to you about it first.  One to one sessions can also be used just to have fun!

 

Some things you might want to talk about during a one to one session might include

 

  • ​how you feel about caring 

  • the illness or disability of the person you care for

  • how you are coping at school

  • help with schoolwork/homework

  • ​any worries you may have

  • ​what you want to do in the future

  • what you think may help you 

  • help with applying for college/university 

  • what you want to do when you are not caring

  • friendships
