Sheffield Young Carers Project going from strength to strength

7th May 2014

Following a fantastic year as Chamber Charity of the Year 2012/13, we're pleased to report that Sheffield Young Carers Project is growing! As many of you know, we provide support to young people between 8 and 21 years of age, who are taking on a substantial caring role for a member or members of their family who have a chronic physical or mental illness, a disability, and / or a substance misuse issue.

In response to sustained high demand for our service, Sheffield Young Carers Project is currently advertising three part-time vacancies for work with young carers aged 8-21, delivering group work and individual support across the city. It's an exciting opportunity to join a growing, vibrant organisation where your ideas and contributions will be highly valued, so please tell everyone you know! The closing date for all three posts is 5pm on Thursday 8th May 2014. For more details about each post and to download the application pack, please see On behalf of all the young carers and families we help, thank you once again for your support.
