At Carers Bucks, we believe that a young person with a caring responsibility has the same right to life choices as their peers. Caring for a family member should not reduce life opportunities, such as further and higher education, employment and independent living.

The ‘Same Chances’ programme aims to support young adult carers aged 16 – 25 years old, as they transition into adulthood and independence, whilst continuing to provide unpaid care for a family member at home.

Through the ‘Same Chances’ programme, we can offer you:

  • Regular social events
  • Life Skills programme
  • One to one intervention
  • Emergency Planning
  • Representation at meetings
  • Information, advice and signposting
  • Steering Group

All these services are free.

If you are a young adult carer, please feel free to phone us at any time for help or advice, or if you just need someone to talk to.

Please contact Sarah Collin, Young Adult Carers Project Lead on 01494 463536 / 07555 100728 or
