We know that young adult carers can need extra support in order to make the transition from school to whatever comes next. Thanks to a grant from the Lloyds Bank Foundation we are now able to offer:
- Intensive case work to support access to apprenticeships, volunteering roles, further education and accredited training opportunities and to provide support to apply for grants and bursaries. We also offer a personal mentor to participants.
- A programme of training to help prepare participants for the world of work or further education. This includes workshops on things such as financial management, confidence and self-esteem, CV writing and interview skills.
Hillingdon Carers also offer a complementary social programme as the young adult carers we work with tell us that breaks from caring are critical to their wellbeing.
