Caithness KLICS is the only dedicated young carers project in Caithness and our aims are to support young people under the age of 18 years old who have a caring role at home. These young people can find themselves caring or supporting a parent with a long or short term illness or who may have drug alcohol or mental health issues. They could also be helping support a sibling. We aim to support these young people through one to one support, group activities and by working with the schools to ensure they reach the same potential as their peers.
We will support and encourage the youngsters to become more confident and build self esteem so they can empower their own lives to be able to make their own decisions for their futures.
We will have respite breaks where they can relax and enjoy being what they are CHILDREN.
We can offer One to One support or we have a drop in at our New KLICS Centre "Old Norlin Playgroup, Macleod Road Wick"
