Young carers are defined as a child aged between 6-18 who cares for a family member they live with. North Wales Young Carers helps to give them a childhood.
North Wales Young Carers support young carers across North Wales in three key areas, school holiday respite programmes, individual & group support and working with schools/colleges to provide specialised support. Principally North Wales Young Carers is funded by private donations.
“ Joining NWYC as a volunteer in May of last year has enabled me to rebuild the confidence I’d felt I had lost in supporting young people. When I started with NWYC my confidence had hit rock bottom and I wasn’t sure how I’d get on but working with NWYC and the young carers has given me back some of that confidence I’d lost as well as being an absolute joy to support you all with what you do so thank you. ”
Volunteers are at the heart of what we do – they are the glue that keep our sessions running and our events for young carers possible. The dedicated support they provide us with gives us the chance to make some wonderful things happen for young carers.Volunteer

Hats off to all the staff they are all welcoming and caring towards the young carers and it's them that make the charity and of course all the lovely kind donations ”
