About This Service
Capital Carers works with young people aged 5 to 18 years old, who care for someone at home – usually a parent, guardian, sibling or someone they live with. We run support groups for Young Carers, one to one support, peer support, schools work as well as signposting on to other agencies.
R U A YOUNG CARER?
A Young Carer is someone aged 18 or under who helps look after a parent, guardian, sibling or anyone living in the household with them.
These individuals may suffer from mental, emotional or physical disabilities, have drug or alcohol issues. Most Young Carers look after someone who lives in the same house as them, this is either a parent, guardian or sibling.
