GYGYC is a Charity which works with young people aged 8-25 who are caring for their parents or another family member.

The aim of he project is to support and offer respite, fun and learning opportunities to young people who are caring for their parents or supporting their parents in caring for their siblings who would otherwise miss out on the normal transitional years associated with with adolescence.

We also have a Young People’s committee who are at the heart of everything we do and are highly involved in the decision making process for the Charity. We do things like paint balling, swimming, bowling, cinema, retro skate, hilltops, quasar, ice skating, meals out, the group provides food and drink for the young people.

The group provides support to young carers such as, confidence building, social skills, developing relationships and just having someone to talk to and be there for you when needed. We became a Charity in June 2013 and continue to expand our work. Our Charity number is: 1152226. If you would like to self refer or are a professional wishing to refer a young person to the group please contact us.
