Am I a Young Carer?
If you are aged 5-18 and helping to look after a relative who has a long term illness, disability, mental health condition, or substance misuse problem… Then you are a YOUNG CARER!
Many young people in this situation don’t even realise that they are a Young Carer and that what they are doing is very special. Young Carers have rights too and deserve help and support to enable them to cope with their caring role.
If you are a Young Carer, take a look at our website and see if you would be interested in being a part of one of our projects. We offer a wide range of support and also help to get you involved in various outings and meeting new people.
What to do next
If you would like to be referred to us as a Young Carer and start receiving support, all you need to do is phone 01782 793100 – you can phone yourself or ask an adult to phone for you.
