Credu: Connecting Carers are working in partnership with the council to deliver the Information, Advice and Support Service for Carers in Powys.
Young Carers are children and young people under 25 who have caring responsibilities from someone who has a physical or mental illness, a physical or learning disability or a drug or alcohol problem. There is support especially for young carers from Powys young carers.
Young carers from across Powys have produced a short animation. The film highlights the perceptions that some people may have of a young person without knowing their day to day challenges of juggling school and home life while caring for a family member.
Carers Wales - Supports carers by providing information and advice
Carers Trust Wales - Offers practical support to carers who live in Powys, giving them a break away from their caring responsibilities.
