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.

We are lucky to have the support of some of our Local Businesses and Charities without whom we would not be able to provide the level of activities and groups needed by our young carers.

We have received donations that include those from individuals, from small organisations and groups of school children. We are very grateful for all. We are also appreciative of those who have shown an interest in our young carers and want to help in enabling them to fulfil their potential.

We would like to acknowledge in particular the ongoing support of:


  • Barclaycard
  • The Hannah Payne Trust
  • Margaret Giffen Charitable Trust
  • The Rotary Clubs (Countywide)
