Planning Your Future 

Your caring role should not get in the way of your goals and future plans, we are here to help you in order to make those next steps a little bit easier.

The most important thing you can do is make time to think about your own life. Talking to others about yourself isn’t selfish! professionals, counsellors and the 18-25 support coordinators can all help.

We have teamed up with City College Plymouth and will be running workshops alongside expert teaching staff at the college. This will be on the 3rd Monday of every month starting on 21st Feb 2022! 

This is an exciting collaboration aimed at helping young adult carers understand their role a bit more with topics like end-of-life care, dementia, how to safely move and handle others as well as equip them with the skills needed in everyday life by working on resilience, motivation, English and maths. 

These workshops are FREE to join and will be held in the City Centre at Pinpoint




If you are a Young Adult Carer and want help with accessing the above opportunities, please feel free to contact  us via phone, text or email:

Returning to Education

It is never too late to learn something new. So why not start today!

Once you’re out of education it can be hard to return. Fortunately, there are lots of ways to give yourself that second chance you deserve. Below we have outlined some useful information to help you figure out what’s best for you.

College courses can still be free for adult learners, so sign up whilst you can!

What employers want to see most are English and Maths qualifications.  Part time courses in the day or evening are free to all ages, giving everyone a chance to reach GCSE grade 9-4.


Here is a list of some key educational providers in the city offering FREE courses.
