Young Carers in Wrexham
WCD Young Carers
WCD stands for Wrexham, Conwy and Denbighshire. In WCD Young Carers, WCD is pronounced ‘wicked’.
WCD Young Carers provides services for Young Carers and Young Adult Carers in Wrexham, Conwy and Denbighshire. WCD Young Carers is a part of Credu (formerly Powys Carers Service).
At WCD Young Carers we work closely with the statutory and third sector organisations to provide services to Young Carers and Young Adult Carers throughout the region. We communicate Young Carers’ views to local and national policy makers and play an active part in promoting Carers’ rights.
We support Young Carers and Young Adult Carers to continue to care for their loved ones and to care for themselves as individuals (for example in regard to their education and social life), through our team of outreach workers, sessional workers and volunteers.
We work with a number of local and national voluntary organisations to keep in touch and share information about the services that are available, and we are affiliated to the Carers’ Trust, a charity that supports a network of other local Carers Support Centres.
