Young Carers FIRST

If you are a Young Carer who lives in Medway, you can access our Medway Young Carers Project - Young Carers FIRST

The Medway Young Carer project aims to support young people aged 5 to 18 who are in a caring role by offering them support and the opportunity to have a break from their caring role and meet others who are in a similar situation.

A Young Carer is someone aged between 5 and 18 who cares for someone. The person they care for could be a parent, grandparent or a sibling with special needs.

Following referral to Carers FIRST an assessment is done in the family home so the Young Carer Team can see a true picture of the situation the Young Carer faces and can suggest some support.

To register as a Young Carer or for more information please:

   phone our Carers Hub on 0300 303 1555
  email us at YoungCarers@carersfirst.org.uk
  visit our facebook page

Young Carers FIRST is funded by Children in Need

'For Me' is the new app that puts Childline in your pocket. 
It's free, it's secure and it's designed by young people for young people.

From advice to message boards, you can now get everything you need from Childline in an app. It's quick, easy and you can lock it with a PIN. By downloading the app, you're in control. You can talk to us whenever - and wherever - you need to.

This is your place to do what you want. Young people from the Childline community helped us design the app - from choosing images to testing - to make sure we got it right.
