Two new projects have been launched for young carers in Cambridgeshire.
The first is an online support service where young people can talk through their worries at a dedicated time once a week.
The second is a new therapies project which involves working with a team of specialist to allow young carers to express themselves through art, drama, dance and music.
Tracy Hyland, head of young carer and young adult carer services, said: “These important new projects are responding to the changing support needs of carers and offer an extension to the comprehensive services we already offer.
“It is our intention that these services will eventually be introduced to unpaid family carers of all ages.
