'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.

Our services

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 to ensure they’re being supported, or simply providing a listening ear.

Tailored support

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

First Aid Training

There’s 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.   

Information

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!  

Peer Support Group (12yrs+)

We run a range of fun, interesting and educational activities every school holidays. Past activities have included dance courses, animation workshops and a boat trip on the Thames; but we love hearing what our young carers want to do – we’ll try to make it work!

School holiday activities

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