Young carers are children and young people who look after someone in their family who has a disability, a long term illness or is affected by mental health or substance misuse.
Advice, support, respite and free family days out can be accessed from the carers support centre:
Help for young carers | Carers Support Centre
The Young Carers Service provides help and support to children aged 8-18, their families and professionals working with young carers in Bristol and South Gloucestershire.
Tina, our Family Support, makes referrals for those that she's aware of, but statistically we're sure there must be more children out there that need support.
Come and see Tina for a chat.
