Be Free Young Carers
Who we are
Be Free Young Carers is an established Oxfordshire charity that helps young carers aged 8 to 24 flourish as children and young adults whilst coping with the demands of their caring roles. Be Free Young Carers provides young carers with:
- Emotional support and befriending - meeting with young carers to help to alleviate isolation, anxiety and stress that so many young carers experience, talking through their concerns;
- Social activities - time for themselves away from their caring roles, to make friends, socialise, have fun and be a child;
- Training - in key skills such as first aid and cookery/nutrition to improve their self-confidence and ability to cope in their caring roles;
- Leisure card - discounted pay and play activities at local leiure centres.
