Darlington Young Carers

Support for young carers and young adult carers to reduce the impact of their caring role

Humankind’s innovative project, Darlington Young Carers provides a range of much needed support for Young Carers aged under 16 and Young Adult Carers up to the age of 25 years. We aim to ensure that Young Carers are given the same life opportunities as their peers and have the required coping mechanisms to cope with the impact of their caring role.

We provide:

  • One to One Support 
  • Activities, Support Groups and Respite opportunities
  • Information, Advice and Guidance   
  • Whole Family Support
  • Advocacy

If you are a young carer or if someone you know provides physical and/or emotional care for a family member with a long term illness, disability, mental health condition, drug/alcohol addiction or are in a sibling caring role – then please contact our Darlington Young Carers Team.

The service is funded by Darlington Borough Council and Darlington Clinical Commissioning Group.
