Get Involved

Here are some ways you can get involved in YCNet and in helping other young carers

  •     Join YCNet, our online community

If you sign up to the interactive part of this site you can meet and chat to other young carers or to our Online Youth Workers in our chat room.

Or why not make new friends and get things off your chest on the discussion boards?

You can also visit our new blogs page on YCNet , read the blogs and add your comments on what has been written. Find out more about blogs here or go straight to the blogging page.

  • Help us make YCNet better

Help us improve YCNet by joining our User Group or welcome new members into the community.

We regularly ask the User Group for their ideas and opinions to help us make YCNet a more useful service to young carers. Find out how to join our User Group

We match new users with existing members to help them feel comfortable when they first join YCNet. Find out how to be a buddy

  • Help us raise the profile of young carers

If you are happy to share your story with us or the media, this will help to raise awareness of young carers and what they have to cope with.

  • Help improve young carers’ services across England

We’re working alongside young carers’ services around the country to help work out what is most useful for young carers and what works well.

We’d love to hear your opinions! Find out more

  • Help Carers Trust

You can really help out by giving some of your time and volunteering to help us support carers.
