Case Studies

Alex-pic.jpg
Being a young carer to your whole family
Alex, 16, has been a carer since he was just nine years old. He spends over five hours a day caring for three members of his family: his mum, who has multiple sclerosis; his nan, who is a double amputee; and his granddad who has suffered from a series of strokes. Alex’s caring role is very demanding; for many people this would be too much but Alex is a remarkable teenager. Not only does he care for his family in between school but he also spends his limited spare time being part of Spurgeons young carers’ committee and volunteering for the MS Society.

Her relationship with Joshua's dad was mentally and psychologically abusive and he was often aggressive. Our work set about turning Sophie and Joshua's lives around. Following the Triple R programme, Sophie is now much more confident and is preparing to volunteer with Spurgeons.
