Referring A Young Carer

Refer Yourself

If you’re aged between 6 and 25 and caring for somebody who is unwell and could not cope without you, then it sounds like you’re a young carer. It’s our job to help support young people like you who live in Stockport. Depending on your age, we can do that in lots of different ways including helping to explain to your school, college or employer what you’re going through, and arranging for you to have some fun with other young carers away from your caring responsibilities.

We care about the challenges you face and want you to know that you are not alone.

Please let us know about you by phoning the office for a chat on 0161 947 4690, emailing or texting Katy on 07540 722371.

Refer Someone You Know

If you personally know a young person aged 6-25 in Stockport who you think may be a young carer and need some help, you’re welcome to contact us in any of the ways mentioned above. All enquiries will be treated with the utmost confidentiality.
