Niamh and Faith, 15-year-old twin sisters, care for their mum who has multiple medical conditions and needs support to complete day to day activities.

They joined the Wigan & Leigh Young Carers group in 2018 and access regular support through this, including a teen group in Leigh where they have met lots of new friends. It’s also allowed them to go on trips to North Wales and many other places.

Wigan & Leigh Young Carers is a registered charity supporting young carers aged 5-24. For more information visit, email or call 01942 679352.
