Bright Futures offers support to Young Carers (aged 14-17) and Young Adult Carers (aged 18-24) to help them get the skills and confidence they need to manage periods of transition and improve their future life chances. The project is Devon-wide and funded by the Big Lottery.
A carer is somebody who looks after a member of their family or a friend with a disability, a long-term illness, mental health problem, or someone who is affected by drug or alcohol misuse.
While this can be very rewarding, having the responsibility of a caring role means that young adult carers may miss opportunities and choices that other young adults have.
