Carers in Bedfordshire - Young Carers


Young Carers are children or young people under 18, who care for someone who has a disability, illness, mental health condition, learning difficulties, sensory impairment, HIV/AIDS or substance misuse.

Young Carers may experience isolation, difficulties coping at home, problems at school, lack of social experiences and often need information and advice on the illness or disability their family member may have.

Support

We believe in the positive benefit of Young Carers meeting as many share common experiences. They can also gain peer support while having great fun! We can help you to develop strategies for dealing with difficulties and improving your health and well-being.
