What help and support do we offer?
The Centre 33 team can support you to overcome your challenges and any barriers you might face because of your caring role. We help you set goals and work with you to achieve them.
We run school time groups in many secondary schools to give you a chance to meet other young carers in your school and have some fun.
We organise trips, outings, activities and holidays to give you some time off and meet other young carers. Here are some examples of trips we have done with young carers:
Roller skating / indoor surfing / theme parks / sports days / seaside trips / trampolining / arts projects / museum visits.
How can I get involved?
Talk to your schools champion (look for the name here )who can put you in touch with us.
Drop in to Centre 33 if you are 13 or over and we can help you access support
You may be entitled to a Young Carers Needs Assessment which will assess if your whole family could get support.
You can email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
SOMEONE TO TALK TO
We are here to listen to you. Maybe you just need some time out from caring or some support to help you with an issue or particular problem. We are working closely with your school to support you. As well as groups we offer you the chance to see us one-to-one at school to talk through any issues you or worries you are experiencing.
We also help you during times of change, so if you are in year 9, or year 11 we can support you to plan for your next steps.
Note about consent
At Centre 33 all our services are confidential. That means we will not tell anyone, without your permission, that you are in contact with us or what you tell us. If you are in the young carers project then your parents or carers and sometimes your school are usually informed and involved unless it is not appropriate or you don’t want them to be. We can discuss this with you.
That would only change if we thought you or someone else was at risk of serious harm. If we did have to talk to someone else to help keep you safe, we would always try to talk to you about that first.
