Young Carer Support

Being a young carer can be hard if you don't have help or support - don't struggle alone. Find help and advice that can help you and your family. 

Looking after someone can sometimes take up a lot of time and it can sometimes be very difficult to cope with everything. Going to school, meeting up with friends and doing the things you enjoy can sometimes be hard to fit in.

If you think you might be a young carer, or you’re not too sure, and feel you need additional help and support, talk to someone you trust like your teacher at school or your doctor. You can call us on 01722 333034 and book an appointment with a GP. We have telephone and face to face appointments available from early morning to later in the evening.

They will be able to refer you to Wiltshire Council’s Young Carer team for a young carers’ assessment which will look at the support that could be offered to you and your family.

Young people and parents can now self refer for a young carer assessment. Call 0300 456 0108. Or you can contact Carer Support Wiltshire on 0800 181 4118 or send a message through their website.
