Lincolnshire Young Carers

Lincolnshire Young Carers

Lincolnshire Young Carers is a service designed to help and support children and young people up to the age of 18 years who are helping to care for someone at home. That person may be a parent, brother or sister, grandparent or any other relative who has a:

  • Physical disability
  • Mental health condition
  • Learning disability
  • Misuses alcohol or drugs
  • A sensory impairment (hearing or sight loss)
  • Life limiting condition
  • Any other long term illness or condition
  • Young carers can be in any family, from any background, and in any situation.

Young carers are valued within Lincolnshire, but we recognise that it is not always easy being a young carer.

The Young Carers Service understands the challenges young carers may face at home, at school, or within college or employment.

We offer a comprehensive service which will give young carers someone who will assess their needs, provide information, and make sure the right support is provided.

There may also be the opportunity for attending a group or an activity, and the chance to meet up with other young carers.

Anyone can refer to our service : families can self refer or a professional such as a teacher, school nurse, or social worker can refer for you.
