Young Carers Support Group Volunteer - Stansted

A Young Carer is someone between 8 and 18 years, who cares for someone in their family or household due to a disability, illness or drug/alcohol addiction.

A volunteer is needed once a month on Mondays in Stansted from 5.30 pm until 7.30 pm and will involve interacting with and supporting the young people in a variety of activities. These include organising games, sports, crafts and assistance with IT/homework.

The groups are held during the school term.
