Join Sheffield Young Carers

We offer support to children and young people aged 8-25 who live in Sheffield and provide care for one or more family members who have disabilities, long-term physical illnesses, mental health difficulties or who misuse drugs or alcohol.

We also offer help for families affected by mental ill health and/or substance misuse.

If you are a young carer and need some help, you can contact us to talk things through or apply to SYC by filling in our referral form. We do have a waiting list at the moment, but we will get back to you as soon as we can! 


SYC produces a newsletter with information and opportunities for young carers and their families. Sign up here!
