What success will look like
This project will utilize our tested and proven user/youth led ethos and methodologies to empower and provide with opportunities one of the most marginalized
young carers are trapped in a vicious cycle of poverty. However, if managed well, responsibilities that associated with caring can enable a young person to develop personally and to gain life skills that can also facilitate the transition to adulthood and lead to positive outcomes for young people. Recongising, valuing and respecting these skills, the programme will aim to bridge the cultural and institutional gap and offer a smooth transition form caring to adulthood.
Young carers experience serious educational disadvantage caused by factors such as poor attainment, restricted peer networks and bullying.
