Carers Support Centre (CSC) - Bristol and South Gloucestershire provides a wide range of information, advice and support services for unpaid adult and young carers. Our Young Carers Service provides help and support to children and young people aged 8-18, their families, and professionals working with young carers.

Young carers are children and young people who look after someone in their family who has a disability, a long-term illness, or is affected by mental ill health or substance misuse. Young carers may look after parents, care for a brother or sister, or another family member.

• providing individual tailored 1:1 support and advocacy
• taking a ‘whole family approach’ to delivering high-quality, effective and well-managed casework
