Dorset Young Carers Service

Young carers are children or young people aged between 5 and 18 who provide significant, regular or ongoing care and emotional support to a family member who is mentally ill, physically ill or disabled. At the Dorset Young Carers service we assess you as a young carer to identify your individual needs and decide how to meet them. We aim to take a whole family approach to consider family needs while signposting to adult services where appropriate.
