Carers Support Centre (CSC) - Bristol and South Gloucestershire provides a wide range of information, advice and support services for unpaid adult and young (children) carers. Our Young Carers Service provides help and support to young people aged 8-18, their families, and professionals working with young carers.

Young carers are children and young people who look after someone in their family who has a disability, a long-term illness, or is affected by mental ill health or substance misuse.

Young carers may look after parents, care for a brother or sister, or another family member. The average age of a young carer is 12 and they take on responsibilities normally only expected of an adult.

The successful candidate will;

• lead on activity and groupwork planning for YCs;
• co-ordinate participation and engagement meetings to ensure YCs have their voices heard;
• work with partner organisations to develop a high-quality programme of provision for breaks and social interaction.
