young carers

The Young Carers group is for ages 12-18 years.

The group offers 1-2-1 support which is available on the nights the group is run but also whenever you need it by contacting the Young Careers team.

Young Carers group sessions are held every TUESDAY night 6pm-8.30pm at the Y-Sort It base. (transport can be arranged for those traveling from Dumbarton/Vale area) Each session has lots of different activities and no two sessions are the same!!

Support is available on alternate nights from the Young Carers team and also online.

Respite opportunities and day trips are available for Young Carers and are always fantastic events when they run.
By attending the group there are opportunities to mix with your peer group and have loads of fun.
