How Can We Support You?

The Barking & Dagenham and Thurrock Young Carers Projects can support you in lots of different ways:  

  • You can join us on positive and fun activities and trips away 
  • 1:1 support with a Young Carers Support Worker 
  • You can chat to us via social media or text messages 
  • Have access to our training / workshop programme to gain new skills 
  • Access to our newsletter 
  • Confidential advice and information 
  • Meet other young people with similar stories 
  • Have time out from your caring role 
  • We can help you talk to your school, so they have a better understanding of your caring role and offer extra support if needed 
  • Plan for your future using the Outcome Star 
  • Access a formal Young Carers Assessment 
  • Access out tutor group to help with homework (Barking & Dagenham only) 
  • Help with transition from school to work / college or university 


Every Young Carer's situation is different, it is not necessarily the amount of care undertaken but the impact that it has on a young person's life.
