A young carer is a young person who cares for someone in their family who has an:
- Mental health condition
- Other vulnerability or frailty
In 2014, our youth workers supported a group of young people to open our first provision for young carers in Slough. This has evolved into an entire service supporting young carers aged 5 to 18 (or up to 25 with learning difficulties or special educational needs).
