Young Carers

Young Carers are children and young people who look after or help look after someone at home who has a long-term illness or disability. This could be a parent, brother, sister or grandparent.

Young carers help out in many different ways:

  • Doing housework
  • Getting shopping
  • Keeping someone company/emotional support
  • Helping someone get dressed or washed/support with personal care
  • Listening to someone or cheering them up
  • Household management including financial support

If you are a young carer, you need to have time off from caring, time to do the things other young people may take for granted, like:

  • Chilling out
  • Having your own space
  • Having fun
  • Talking to someone
  • Meeting other young people who care for someone

The North-East Lincolnshire Young Carers Project will

  • Support you
  • Give you the chance to be yourself
  • Give you some space
  • Listen to anything you want to talk about
  • Give advice or find out information if you need it
  • Give help in practical ways so that you can spend more time with your friends
