Join SYC

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, or mental illnesses

  • are affected by drug and alcohol issues in their family (now or in the past)

You helped me understand that I don’t have to be strong all the time and it’s okay to cry

We also offer help for adults being supported by a young carer in their family.

If you 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!

While you're waiting for support from SYC, or if you decide you don't want to join, we also have lots of information about organisations and websites that can help you. To take a look, click here.

We also produce a newsletter with information and opportunities for young people and their families. Sign up here!
