Young Carers Service
At North Tyneside Carers’ Centre, we work with young carers and their families. The young carers’ team provides practical and emotional support to young carers around their caring role.
We offer a breaks and activities service so that young carers take a break from caring, explore new activities and aspirations and make friends with other young people who have a caring role.
We also run Social Action projects, for young carers who would like to work on bespoke projects to bring about positive change for the young carers of North Tyneside.
Please note: We can only accept referrals for a young person where a Young Carers’ Needs Assessment is in place.
