Young Carers

Do you look after, or help to look after a relative?

Many young people have the responsibility of helping to care for a family member who is disabled or has a long term condition. At times this can be quite a challenge and you may feel lonely and worried about the person you are looking after.

Gateshead Crossroads has a special team of young carer support workers who offer information, advice and practical support - they also offer places where young carers can meet and get involved in activities.

For further information:

They are based at The Old School, Smailes Lane, Highfield, Rowlands Gill, NE39 2DB
