Young Carers

We support young carers living in Hyndburn and the Ribble Valley


What is a Young Carer?

A young carer is a person under the age of 18 who is looking after a family member with a long term illness, disability, mental health or substance misuse issue.

What tasks might a Young Carer do?


Preparing Meals

Looking after Siblings


Looking after Family

Emotional Support

Giving Medication

Keeping Family Company


Could you imagine a young person undertaking some of these tasks on a daily basis? This is the reality for Young Carers.


The support we offer is tailored to the individual needs of each Young Carer but also involves a whole family approach.
