We believe that young carers should have a life of their own alongside their caring role. Being a young carer shouldn't prevent children and young people from having time to themselves, making friends, being happy and healthy or having the same opportunities as their peers.
Our staff understand the lives that young carers and their families lead and treat our service users with respect and compassion. We provide a range of services that address the issues that young carers tell us are important, including breaks, social opportunities, emotional support and programmes to promote health and wellbeing.

We provide statutory Young Carer Assessments on behalf of Gateshead Council. They consider the impact that caring has on a young carer's life and what we can do to offer support.
