To help reduce the anxiety of being challenged when out, Devon Young Carers are providing cards for young carers.
Devon Young Carers are aware that many young carers have been feeling anxious about being challenged whilst they are out of the house undertaking tasks such as shopping for the person the care for. Others have reported feeling anxious about going out to exercise. To overcome this, a card identifying them as young carers can be provided.
Young carers need to be registered with the service and have had an assessment. If Early Help colleagues are working with families with a young carer where this would be helpful please get in contact either with the allocated young carers worker or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
