Services for Young Carers

Young Carers Project

Young Carers Project supports children and young people aged 6-17 years, who are helping to care for someone in their family, with a disability, mental health condition, substance misuse issue or long-term illness.

Young Carers can access support, activities, fun days out and a range of services in Brighton & Hove.

Schools Work

The Carers Centre works with primary, secondary and special schools in Brighton & Hove to support school staff to identify young carers in their schools.

Find more information on the Young Carers in Schools page of the Carers Trust.

Military Young Carers

Young Carers might be supporting a parent or sibling who has sustained a physical and/or emotional injury whilst serving in the Armed Forces.  The young person may be supporting a parent or sibling who has a health issue whilst another family member is serving in the military.  Carers Hub is able to support Military Young Carers through the Young Carers Project.
