"Young carers are children and young people who look after someone in their family who has an illness, a disability, or is affected by mental ill-health or substance misuse. Young carers often take on practical and/or emotional caring responsibilities that would normally be expected of an adult. The tasks undertaken can vary according to the nature of the illness or disability, the level and frequency of need for care and the structure of the family as a whole."



Kelly Chambers is responsible for the Young Carers service across Kent. KYC enables Young Carers to receive some respite from their caring responsibilities, socialise with their peers and receive tailored support. KYC will be working with Young Carers from 5-18 years old living anywhere in Kent, providing social groups for Young Carers called Chill Clubs.
