Suffolk Carers Young People Services - Ipswich

We support Young Carers and Young Adult Carers aged from 9 to 24 years old, who provide support for a family member who suffers from a long term illness. This could be either a physical disability, mental ill health or substance misuse.  

Young Carers and Young Adult Carers who access our service can obtain advice and guidance from our dedicated team of support workers. Additionally, we undertake a needs assessment to identify the sort of support that we can offer to those referred to us. This support may take the form of activities, peer support, 1:1 support and information. We also liaise with schools and colleges and other professionals.
