Young Carers

Northamptonshire Young Carers Service

Northamptonshire Young Carers Service exists to help promote the health and wellbeing of young carers and their families.

We will work to make sure young carers are identified and recognised within our local community and help to prevent them taking on more responsibility than they should or could cope with. We aim to help them reduce feelings of isolation. We understand that young carers are individuals in individual families and have different needs.  We will allow young carers and their families a say in what our support will be with a focus on improving confidence and helping prevent the type of problems that young carer families may face.

We aim to promote an understanding of the balance needed between being a Carer and having an opportunity to have hopes and dreams that will in turn help young carers to fulfil their individual potential.

Northamptonshire Young Carers Service is part of a larger organisation called Northamptonshire Carers.  We are a registered charity providing support and services free of charge to Young Carers throughout the county.

Although we do receive limited funding from statutory authorities, our budgets are stretched and we are always looking for ways to raise money to help us continue to identify and support the ever growing numbers of Young Carers in Northamptonshire.

Without donations the opportunities that we can offer Young Carers are much more limited than we feel are beneficial.  We are very grateful for any donation, large or small.
