Young Carers - Derbyshire

Organisation address:

32A Newbold Road
Chesterfield
Derbyshire
S41 7PH 

 

More information

Young carers are young people and children under the age of 18 years who provide care and support to another person on a regular basis, for example a brother or sister, grandparent or parent.
They may help care for someone who has a physical or learning disability, terminal illness, depression or mental ill health or, someone who has a drug or alcohol problem.
The support young carers give may vary from practical help such as shopping, housework or cooking. It could also be personal care for example bathing, toileting or, it may involve them offering emotional support to someone who is depressed. Often they will be doing a number of these things.
Derbyshire and Derby City Young Carers is a project run by National Childrens Homes (NCH), a national charity.
The project covers the whole of the county and it offers support to young carers in order for them to have the same opportunities as other children and young people.
We offer the chance to take a break from caring by providing organised social events, groups and residential breaks. There is also the opportunity to spend time with others who have similar experiences.
