Young Carers

Helping young people who care for a family member


If you are a young person and help to look after someone in your family, either physically or emotionally, who has an illness, a disability, a mental health problem or a substance misuse problem, you are a Young Carer. 

 If you are a Young Carer we can help you in lots of different ways -

 We can offer you time away from your caring responsibilities where you can:

  • Meet other Young Carers
  • Take part in group sessions and outdoor activities
  • Go on day trips
  • Get help with homework
  • Have someone listen to you
  • Get information and funding
  • Have fun!!!
