A young carer is a child who cares for a family member who has a disability or is affected by ill health, mental health, or substance misuse.


Kernow Young Carers Service is an Action for Children service that is committed to working with children and supporting young carers.  They can offer fun activities, days out, one to one help, residential breaks away, the opportunity to meet new people, support for the whole family and access to grants.


For more information, please visit the Kernow Young Carers Service website, or speak with our Parent Support Adviser & Young Carers Lead, Ms Hollis.
