Young Carers & Young Adult Carers
If you are aged between 5 and 25 and help care for someone in your family, you may be a Young Carer.
Do you look after a relative, partner, friend or child who cannot manage without help because of illness, disability or frailty? If so, you are a carer and you can be placed on your GP’s carer register. Please fill in the form on the following link Carer’s Register Form and hand into our Reception.
The Carers Take A Break service will help you think and plan how to take a break from your caring role and re-charge your batteries.
Are you living with or caring for someone who has diabetes. Please see attached information for help and support.
