Miscellaneous Information:

Eden young carers is a project which offers support to young cares across the Eden area. They offer carers an assessment of their needs, activities, one to one and group support, newsletters and a chance for young carers to have a break from their caring role.  

What is a young carer?

Young carers are children and young people who look after someone in their family who has an illness, a disability, or is affected by mental ill-health or substance misuse. Young carers often take on practical and/or emotional caring responsibilities that would normally be expected of an adult. The tasks undertaken can vary according to the nature of the illness or disability, the level and frequency of need for care and the structure of the family as a whole. Young Carers have the right to have an assessment of their needs.
