If you know a young carer or if you need to know about young carers we are best placed to help you. We can advise on what support is available, tell you what young carers need, and ensure they get what they are entitled to. We can train your staff to recognise the indications that someone is a carer and how best to support them.

We have certain criteria that the individuals must meet in order to qualify for our help. These include:

  • The person must be aged between the ages of 8 and 18.
  • The caring role must be impacting on their life
  • They take responsibility for the care of a family member who has physical or learning disabilities, mental illness, is chronic or terminally ill or is dependent on drugs or alcohol.

If you would like further information or advice, we recommend that you contact us to discuss the individualís circumstances so that we can try to establish whether the individual is eligible.

Our Referral pack can be downloaded and printed off, or you can complete the required form online and submit it to us Ė itís that easy!
