Support for Young Carers

Support for Young Carers in Tower Hamlets

A Young Carer is a person aged 18 or under who cares, unpaid, for a friend or family member suffering from:

  • a long-term illness/condition
  • a physical or learning disability
  • a drug or alcohol problem
  • a mental health condition

The Young Carers Project is run by Tower Hamlets Youth Service and is a project which aims to provide young carers the opportunity to take a break from the daily responsibilities of being a carer by interacting with others facing similar challenges.
