  • Does your parent / family member have a physical or learning disability, a terminal illness or mental health or drug/alcohol problem?
  • Are you worried about this or don’t know what to do?
  • Do you feel lonely, angry, depressed or fed up?
  • Do you find it hard to keep up with your school work?
  • Do you feel you need any other support?

At Carmarthenshire Young Carers’ Service there is someone who you can talk to who understands; can link you with other young people in the same situation and can talk to you and your parent/family member about other people who can help.  Support offered includes focused 1-1 support, peer group support, advocacy and referrals on to other agencies for any family member.

I just wanted to send you a note of thanks for all your work on FIS Carmarthenshire Website. I'm working on pulling together some information for a local initiative to educate children and teens on the consequences of drugs and alcohol. I'm working on preparing a pamphlet, and I've learned a lot from your page. I noticed that you had some really great resources. Well done!
