Refer a young carer to us

Please use this form if you are a professional and would like to refer a young carer, or young adult carer, to our project in Medway or Newham.

Please ensure you discuss this referral with the young person. In our experience young people who are unaware of the referral often will not engage with our service. As this service is child focused it is important that the young person understands why they are being referred.

Provide us with as much information within each of the boxes as possible and blank boxes may result in the referal being returned and a delay in support for the young person until the information required has been received.

We are unable to accept the referral if consent has not been given. If a young carer is 13 or over they are able to consent themselves, if they are under 13 you will need to obtain consent from the parent / guardian.
