Young Carers Commissioning Project

Roots and Wings was asked by Newcastle City Council to produce a report of recommendations for Young Carers’ Services due to be commissioned by the council next year. In response we undertook a bespoke service design process using our own unique model, or as we call it, our RAW method…

This process involved working closely with groups of young carers across a series of creative workshops, and interviewing representative professionals, parents, carers and service providers. The report contains well-evidenced and transparent recommendations. We’re pleased to say that the document was well-received and our findings (and in them the voices of the young carers we worked with) will actuate positive social change across the city through the re-commissioning and the subsequent improvement of the Young Carers’ Services.
