Goddard Park Young Carers

What is a young carer?

A young carer is someone under the age of 18 who helps to care for a family member. 

As many as 1 in 5 children and young people are young carers in the UK.  

Young carers often do a lot of helpful things, such as: 

  • Cook and prepare meals 

  • Help with the shopping 

  • Clean around the house 

  • Manage medicines or money 

  • Give personal care 

  • Help their special person move and get out of the house 

  • Look after their siblings 


Mrs Zoe Grove Welsh, Young Carers Coordinator at Goddard Park can be reached on 01793 342342 or email admin@goddardpark.co.uk. 


Mrs Lee and Mrs Birt run the weekly Goddard Park Young Carers group. The young carers have lots of fun and enjoy a variety of craft activities and board games.


The children have time to talk and enjoy celebrating their birthdays with a cake from Free cakes for kids. 



Are you aged 5-18 Years old and helping to look after someone at home because they have an illness or disability? Maybe Swindon Young Carers can help?
