Session 5: Identifying my next steps and where I can find information and support
You have been looking at how to start working towards your goals, and how you can help yourself. You now have an idea of where you want to get to and what difficulties there might be. You also know what aspects of your life might help you. We all need some help in getting to where we want to be in life. Are there people you know who can also help you and support you – family members, friends, work colleagues, carers’ centre staff or others?
Listen to Alana describe the support she gets from the Young Adult Carers’ scheme at NEWCIS, her local carers’ centre.
