Centre 33 is a charity that offers free and confidential support to young people across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.

Young carers are young people under the age of 18, that have caring responsibilities within their home.

The Young Carers team would like to work with other professionals to raise awareness and support identification of young carers across the county, enabling them to receive appropriate support when they need it. As part of this we have developed some Young Carer Awareness Training.

The training will aim to cover, what and who a young carer is, the types of support that they may provide to their family member, the impacts, both positive and negative, that caring can have on a young person, ways in which young carers can be identified, how young carers can be supported, both by Centre 33 and by other professionals and some of the barriers that could impact on young carers receiving support.

GPs can follow up on this session by attending the Training Hub Safeguarding in Practice case-based discussion session on Tuesday 30th November, 7.30-8.30pm, which can be booked here.
