Young Carers

Register a young carer on the Young Carers Network

A young carer is someone aged eight to 18 who takes on caring responsibilities for a member of their family due to illness or disability.

These tasks may have an impact on their school life, social opportunities, or their own emotional and physical health.

Any professional that identifies a young person who cares should ensure that the child is registered on the Young Carers Network (YC Network).

We keep young carers on the YC Network up to date with the latest information on services, events and activities, and ensure that they are a priority for opportunities in the borough.
