10 year old Ben helps to look after his mum and his younger brother Simon who is 2. In the summer Ben’s dad behaved in a very violent way towards the family. They were frightened and decided to leave the family home and move to Radstock.
The Young Carers Service helped Ben learn how to adjust to his new life and also helped his mum to make some connections with helpful people in Radstock. We provided support in filling out forms and making phone calls so that Ben could change schools.
This meant that Ben’s move to his new school was a lot easier than he had imagined. Ben was also supported to think about how he could say goodbye to his old school friends and helped to make some new ones too.
