Somerset Young Carers

Somerset County Council provides support, advice and respite breaks for children and young people under 18 who have substantial caring responsibilities at home.

The definition of a Young Carer is: if you are under 18 and look after someone by providing substantial and regular care that persists over time and is important in maintaining the health, safety or day-to-day well-being of the person cared for and the wider family.

Other networks: Friends of Young Carers in Somerset have some Young Carers groups – contact them for info;
