Support we offer

Signpost Young Carers Service works with young people aged 6 – 25 years and who live in the Stockport area. Under new legislation young carers now have the right to an assessment of their needs. As part of our support we will talk to you about your caring role and what support may help you and your family. We can offer age appropriate advice, support and activities to help make your life a little bit easier and give you a break from your caring role. Most importantly, we can also help to connect you to other people your age who are in the same boat and understand better than anyone exactly what you're going through.

Young Adult Carers

Signpost Young Carers also support carers 18 – 25 years, as we know that leaving education or trying to find employment and managing a caring role can be difficult. We offer one to one and group support for this age group. We're ready to hear from you!
