Young Carers

A young carer is a young person who cares for someone in their family who has an:

  • Illness
  • Disability
  • Addiction
  • 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). To find out more about young carers and our offer for young people with caring roles, please visit Slough Young Carers here.
