Gaddum - Young Carers Service

Young carers look after someone else who may be unwell, have a disability, poor mental health or be tackling a drugs or alcohol addiction. They do this simply because they care. Young carers are aged up to 18, and often take on practical and emotional caring responsibilities, tasks usually expected of adults - such as domestic chores, emotional support or personal care for others.

We work with young carers in Salford aged 5-24.

We support Young Carers by offering

  • Up-to 8 confidential support sessions (based on identified needs via assessment) in school or in a confidential space
  • Informal advocacy at family core groups etc
  • Invites to groups and events throughout the year - coproduced/ codesigned by young carers

All support provided is FREE.

We are happy to receive referrals from professionals & family members if you feel the service may benefit young people you know or work with.

We need parent/ guardian consent to begin work with any young carers referred who may be under 18 years old.
