Carers

'Lambeth Young Carers  has made me feel more  confident with other  people and I have made  new friends.'  

Am I a young carer?

A young carer is anyone aged 5 to 21 who helps look after a family member or friend, who has an illness or condition. This might be a physical illness; mental illness; learning disability; or some form of addiction.   

 

A young carer might ‘care’ in all sorts of ways, be it through personal care, help around the home, or by providing emotional support.   

 

No matter how big or small the caring role, we’re here to help.

There are lots of different ways that we can help...

Tailored support

When a young carer joins our service, we always meet them and their family to understand how we can help. Help might involve linking families with other services, speaking to a young carer’s school or simply providing a listening ear.

First Aid Training

Join a young carers first aid course delivered by British Red Cross.

Information

There is a lot of support on offer in Lambeth, but these things can be difficult to find. We’re here to fill those gaps. We provide information on training courses, local services and other opportunities within the borough.   

Peer Support Group (12yrs+)

We run a monthly group for young carers. It’s a non-judgemental space for young carers to talk, play games and feed into the planning of activities. Most importantly, it’s a space for them to make their own!  

School holiday activities

We run a range of fun, interesting and educational activities every school holiday. Check out the young carers gallery.  We love hearing what our young carers want to do – we’ll try to make it work!

Free legal clinic

Access free legal advice about Power of Attorney and Court of Protection from Anthony Gold solicitors at our monthly legal clinic.
