Young Carers

Bromley Well provides support for young people who care for others - Young Carers.

 

We support Young Carers aged 4 to 19 to manage caring relationships whilst enjoying childhood. 

There are two full-time Young Carer Workers. The service provides:

  • A Young Carers App - a safe, secure, online space dedicated to young carers in Bromley borough
  • Opportunities to meet with other young carers, have fun, discuss any worries and try out new activities
  • Emotional support to discuss your caring role and any worries or questions you may have
  • Individual therapeutic support by professionals from the Bromley Wellbeing Service in central Bromley
  • Workshops to help develop your practical life skills
  • Workshops to help you think about your mental wellbeing and develop strategies for managing emotions
  • Leisure and social activities including outings and special events
  • Quarterly Young Carers Forum for you to share ideas and discuss ways to improve and develop the service we provide
  • Support for transition / changes in your life e.g moving to secondary school, changes in your caring role, preparing for adulthood
  • Drop-in sessions during the school holidays
