Support for young carers

If you are a young person caring for someone, and need extra help or need more time for hobbies or school, you may be able to get support and advice from us. 

You are a young carer if you:

  • are aged between 5 and 18
  • provide care, assistance and support to someone else in your family.

To get support from us, you will need a complete a Young Carers Assessment. This will find out about the care you give and the support we can offer you. 

How do I request a Young Carers Assessment?

The support you could receive includes:

  • help towards school or college activities
  • leisure activities, spending time with friends
  • help towards hobbies or interests
  • equipment to help with your education such as books or a computer
  • help finding a job.

As part of your support we may offer you a personal budget. This gives you some choice and control over the support you get.
