Get support if you are a young carer

Please use this form if you are a young person in Medway or Merton

Being a young carer may have a big impact on your life, affecting your health, self-confidence, and social life.

You can struggle to juggle your education and caring, causing stress and pressure, and may sometimes miss school because of your caring role. Your teachers may not know about your caring responsibilities which can make accessing support harder.

You are not alone – we support other young carers like you. We can connect you to other carers, and give you access to lunch clubs, one-to-one sessions, trips out, and more.

Get in touch with us to access the help and advice you deserve.

If you are aged 13 or over you are able to consent yourself, if you are under 13 you will need to ask your parent or legal guardian to complete the parent / guardian referral form on our website. Unfortunately, we are unable to accept a referral if consent has not been given.
