As if college work was not tough enough. If you’re caring for an adult with a physical or mental illness it can leave you feeling like there’s not time enough to fit in everything your course requires. If it’s affecting your study, we can help.
If you are 16 to 24 years old and care for or are affected by an adult who has a physical or mental illness, you are a young adult carer.
Suffolk Family Carers comprises a team of professionals who want to help you if you care for an adult, if you are struggling to cope, or if you just need some information to help you along the way.
Accessible via Student Welfare, the team is led by the lively Garrie and Claire. You can make an appointment to talk through any issues you’re dealing with, or drop in to the lunchtime sessions they run once a term. For more information, visit suffolkfamilycarers.org/young-carers
