Young SibsSupport for brothers and sisters of disabled children and adults
Barnardo's Lancashire Young carers.We support Young Carers under the age of 18 who provide regular and ongoing care and emotional support to a family member who is physically or mentally ill, disabled or misuses substances and are significantly affected by their caring role.
Carers LinkA carer is someone who provides unpaid, often intensive support to family or friends who could not manage without that support. They could be caring for a relative, partner, friend or neighbour who is ill, frail, disabled, or has mental health or substance misuse problems. Anyone can be a carer - our youngest registered carer is aged just 6, and a persons caring role can sometimes last for decades.
Carers TrustCarers Trust is a major charity for, with and about carers. They work to improve support, services and recognition for anyone living with the challenges of caring, unpaid, for a family member or friend who is ill, frail, disabled or has mental health or addiction problems. Our vision is that unpaid carers count and can access the help they need to live their lives.
