Young people’s zone

We may be called Brighter Futures for Children but that doesn’t mean we don’t support young people – we provide lots of services for anyone aged 13+ too.

If you’re looking after an adult family member who is ill, disabled, has mental health problems or is misusing drugs or alcohol, then this group is here to support you.

You can join weekly group sessions (virtually at the moment) and meet other young people who are going through similar experiences.

You’ll be able to chat through any concerns or get info on relevant topics such as staying safe, food preparation or advice on drugs and alcohol.

The sessions are split into three age groups: 6–9 years, 5–11 years & 13–18 years.

To join, you need to have been assessed using the Young Carers screening tool.
