Support for Young Carers

Wandsworth Young Carers Project supports children and young people aged 5-18 who are affected by the illness or disability of a family member and provide care (physical and/or emotional) to that family member.

The person they care for may have a physical disability, chronic illness, mental health issues, drug or alcohol dependency or HIV/Aids.

 

Caring can be isolating and demanding for children and young people and we aim to ensure that they are identified and supported so that they may have occasional breaks from their caring role.
