“My mum and dad drink a lot. I help get my wee brother out to school every morning and do lots of tidying up. I worry a lot about other people knowing.”
“My mum has depression and I really worry about her. I try and cheer her up when she is unhappy and I help with jobs in the house.”
Someone to talk to – we will listen to you, and help you work out what you want to do.
Access support – we can help ensure your family have the right support available, to reduce your caring role as much as possible.
Help you speak to others – we make sure those who need to be are aware of your situation, so you get the support you need to realise your full potential both academically and socially.
Put you in touch – with other young carers.
Get you involved – we can help make sure you’re able to access the activities and opportunities available to other young people your age.
We can help you decide what information and support you need in your caring role, to make sure you are doing things that are right for your age and circumstances, and that your family are being supported by the correct services.

We offer a range of fun learning opportunities, based on what you tell us you need to know, to improve your skills and confidence, and help you cope with your role as a young carer.

You can speak to someone at school or college, and they will help you complete a Young Carer Statement that sets out the details of your caring role. If you need additional support, they’ll refer you to us. You can also complete the referral form at the bottom of this page, on the right, and send it to us. Someone will be in touch. Alternatively, you can call, email or pop by the office if that is easier.
