    Hi Andy,

    Welcome to Carers.org - we think you'll find the carers here very welcoming and friendly!

    We noticed your age and thought we'd just post a quick message to let you know that every Wednesday, between 8 and 9pm, there's a webchat where quite a few young adult carers (aged 18-25) meet up to chat. You'll also find one of us there too, along with carers of all ages, so we really hope you'll pop along to the chatroom to meet some of us :)

    Claudia, Ewan, Sam and Susannah
    Online Support Team
