Young carers services

This section includes a list of resources for young carers. A young carer is someone aged between 5-18 who helps to look after and care for someone they live with who has a physical disability, mental illness, serious illness, or misuses drugs or alcohol.

Young carers can get support at a range of places, from the Wandsworth Young Carers' Project to an online community called "Matter" from the national charity Carers Trust.
