Young adult carers

If you are aged between 16 and 25 and help to look after a parent, sibling, partner, child, grandparent or other relative who is ill then you are a young adult carer. For more information see What is a young adult carer?

We have a Young Adult Carer service which offers age appropriate advice and social activities.  See How we support young adult carers for more information.

If this sounds like the service for you, or if you know a young adult carer you would like to refer, please contact our Young Adult Carer team at the office. They will then arrange a time to meet you either at your home, our office or at another location to suit you, to discuss your needs further.

You can also download our registration form below. Fill in the first two pages for basic registration, and the whole form if you would like a Carers Assessment of Need.

You can get touch with the team through 01905 715490 or

When you register with us as a young adult carer you will also get a discount card.  If you support someone who is over 18 you may also be able to get a Carers Emergency Card.
