Are you passionate about supporting young people to raise awareness and have a strong voice about issues that matter to them?
Do you love supporting your team to give person-centered, strength based support and achieve excellent standards?
If this describes you, then you have an exciting opportunity to lead and support our passionate and committed Outreach team to empower Young Carers to enjoy a good quality of life and sense of wellbeing in the Wrexham, Conwy & Denbighshire area.
We are a charity which gives enabling, person-centered support to Young Carers and Adult Carers throughout Powys and Young Carers throughout Wrexham, Conwy & Denbighshire.
A Young Carer is someone under 18 who helps to look after someone in their family, or a friend, who is ill, disabled or misuses drugs or alcohol. Caring can be rewarding and Young Carers can be more mature, empathetic and responsible than their peers. However, it can be a significant challenge to juggle the practical and emotional issues involved in looking after someone, with fulfilling their own needs and aspirations.
