Young Carers Service

Who is a young carer? A young carer is someone under 18 who helps look after someone in their family, or a friend, who is ill, disabled, has mental health issues or misuses drugs or alcohol.

We can help by giving you:

  • Time away from caring responsibilities
  • The chance to meet other young carers
  • Take part in peer support and skills based activities
  • Go on day trips
  • Support in school and with homework
  • Learn new skills
  • Someone to listen and a place to talk
  • Information and funding
