  • **This event has been cancelled due to the team not being well, we will aim to do this again very soon. However, if you are a Young Adult Carer and need some advice, please get in touch via email: YACService@leicestercollege.ac.uk or call: 0116 224 2240.**

    Caring for someone requires time and energy. Some of the responsibilities which a Young Adult Carer may have is to regularly and routinely:

    - Cook and clean

    - Support with eating, dressing and medication

    - Give physical help to someone who is disabled or ill

    - Take them to regular appointments

    - Provide emotional support

    - Go to work to provide financial support to the family


    A Young Adult Carer can struggle to set time aside for personal study. They may need to provide care and support to their close ones during the night as well as during the day. With household members dependant on them they are not able to solely focus on their education like their peers. These responsibilities can also affect their own health as well as their attendance and punctuality. Consequently, these factors will impact their learning and their success on the course.

    We have a special live stream with members of our Youth Adult Carer’s Society who will be talking through;

    - Who is classed as a young adult carer?

    - What support the college can give to a young adult carer?

    - Information on key external agencies that offer support to students who are young adult carers.

    All sessions are subject to change, please keep checking back for updates.
