Young Carers Group

HCYC Young Carers Group offers young carers the chance to have fun, try new activities, learn something new and meet other young people in similar situations.

A young carer is a young person who has additional caring responsibilities (emotional or physical) due to a member of their family being ill, having a disability, experiencing mental health difficulties or misusing alcohol or drugs; and these caring responsibilities are negatively impacting their lives (e.g., socially, educationally, physically or emotionally).

To access the group, the young carer must be aged 11 (year 7) to 18 and live in the Harborough District. We can support transportation if this is a barrier to a young carer being able to attend.

(We can also signpost to other possible support for young carers under 11 years, so please still get in touch if this applies).

The group meets fortnightly in Market Harborough from 6.30 to 8.30pm.

All activities are free
