Young carers come from all kinds of families and backgrounds and can be aged from as young as 5 up to 17 years. Young adult carers up to the age of 25 can also receive support from the Carers’ Centre, as can whole families in a caring situation.
We also have a transitional service for young adult carers aged 18 - 25 to help support those coming from children's services to adults.
Any young person who cares for a relative in their family can be referred to the Carers’ Centre. Read our eligibility criteria here.
