Croydon Young Carers Project

The Young Carers Project is a free, friendly and professional local service, offering support to young people who are caring for a parent or sibling.  If you are aged 7-25, and live, work or study in Croydon and are caring for someone with a physical disability, mental health issue, long-term illness or learning difficulty, then our service is here to support you. You can call 0208 251 0251 or visit their website.
