The West Cork Young Carers Programme is a new initiative established in March 2016 to support carers aged 18 and under. The programme works with Young Carers and their families to develop new supports and services based on their needs.

The Young Carer may not be the primary Carer in the family but supports the Primary Carer in their role.

Young Carers will continue to care, but we can help give them a break to learn and have fun, letting them balance their caring responsibilities with just being a child and growing up, providing practical and emotional support to ensure they have fun and achieve, just like their peers.
