The Bridge Young Carers Service

We support children, young people and their families who have a challenging caring responsibility.

We help and support the whole family by:

  • Listening to you about what you and your family need.
  • Sharing information, advice and support with you and your family.
  • Providing young carers with one to one support.
  • Providing young carers with opportunities to meet other young carers through our young carers forums.
  • Helping you get the support you need at school
  • Inviting you to share your views.

We work in your local community and will ensure that you and your family benefit from all the local services available to you.
