Welcome to the area for Young Adult Carers in Powys!
You are a Young Adult Carer if you are aged 16-25 and you have a caring responsibility for someone. At Credu we recognise YACs as a separate group of carers because you have different needs from young carers or adult carers.
While you will have the same issues that most 16-25 year olds go through – exams, thinking about college/university or getting a job, staying at home or moving out – you also have to handle the added weight of considering the needs of the person you look after.
We are here to help. Our team of outreach workers in the Young Adult Carers Service will listen and understand, and provide you with the information and guidance you need. We also organise and support groups and activities you can take part in with other Young Adult Carers, and offer advocacy (someone to speak on your behalf, for example with other services like health or education).
Stay safe online.
