Young carers

If you are a Young Carer who lives in Newham, you can access our Newham Young Carers Project.

The Newham 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.

How we help

We understand how important it is for unpaid carers to access support. Whether you're after 1-2-1 advice, online support, are looking to meet other carers or would like to attend one of our workshops, everything we offer is designed to support you in your role.
