Working for Carers Resource
Young Adult Carer Activity Worker
22.5 hours per week
Salary £19,613 fte - (pro rata for 22.5 hrs £11,927)
We are looking for someone to work with Young Adult Carers (aged 16-25), with experience of developing and setting up a social group and activities. The aim for the club to be eventually managed and led by the young adult carer volunteers. Experience of recruiting and supporting volunteers identified from within the social group will be an essential part of the role to enable long term sustainability of the group.
Young Carers Awareness Day
Count Me In!
We are supporting the Carers Trust Count Me In! campaign which is calling on schools to do more to proactively identify young carers and to ensure that they receive the recognition and support they deserve.
The Young Carers team from Scarborough & Ryedale Carers Resource will be visiting schools in the the area this week to spread the word that there is support available. We will be bringing 'pop-up' stands of information to school corridors and reception areas. Look out for us if you're a young carer or know someone who is - we're here to help.
Lots of local schools have already received notice board packs and are sign posting to the Young Carers service via school notice boards, websites or their social media. We are working with schools to be present at parents evenings with a number booked in for February & March. We have already offered a SEN parents drop in with Braeburn school and on Young Carers Day itself a pupil from St Martins C of E Primary is raising money for Scarborough & Ryedale Carers Resource by hosting a casual clothes day, supported by the school. We have lunch time hubs also booked this week at Lady Lumley’s and Norton College.

Working with Eastenders
SRCR were delighted to be part of the team advising on script development for the recent young carer’s story line on EASTENDERS. It was a privilege to be part of this work and a huge thanks must go to the ‘Team Eastenders’ for getting it right on screen, and raising the profile of the challenges young carers face. Our work on this couldn’t have come at a better time following the NHS announcements last week regarding the increased support for young carers through GP’s surgeries.

Scarborough & Ryedale Carers Resource is proud to be supporting and improving the lives of Carers 52 weeks a year, but on this special week, we are delighted the national spotlight is helping us raise awareness of the hidden army of carers who support their family and friends through challenging times.
Please take time to click on the video link above to meet our team - without them over 2500 carers per year across the Coast and Vale would not benefit from their support, knowledge and experience.
