Young Carers Advocacy Project

Sandwell Advocacy’s ‘Young Carers Advocacy Project’ supports children and young people (5-18 years of age) who provide regular or on-going care and emotional support. This could involve a family member or individual who may be affected by a physical impairment/learning difficulty, mental health condition, drug and alcohol addiction and any other long term illness or condition.
 
It offers support that works within a person centred, but family orientated approach, whilst facilitating access to our integrated package of support that includes crisis intervention and long term advocacy provision. A Young Carers Advocate will provide one-to-one support and enable young carers to engage with the education and welfare system, social networks, short breaks and health and social care services.
 
The project takes referrals directly from the individual themselves, an agency or a third party taken via: the telephone, Email and face to face.
