Young carers and their wellbeing in Bradford

 

Can digital improve the wellbeing of young carers and their dependants?

MYMUP is an online platform that is helping support young carers with their resilience and mental health. We are working with them to discover the ways that digital support can improve the lives of young carers and also increase access to health information for the people that they care for.

As a wave 2 NHS WDP pathfinder, Good Things Foundation is working in partnership with MYMUP, local 3rd sector organisations and education establishments to be able to work with the young carers
