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!

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 carers and their families. Sign up here!
