Young Carers Support


Do you look after someone who can't manage without your help?

If you are under 18 and look after a family member who can't manage without your help you might be a young carer.

This may because they have an illness, disability, mental health or substance misuse problem - it can be hard to know what to do to support them.

FAMILY ACTION - THE BRIDGE YOUNG CARERS SERVICE can help you and your family, for more information contact:  0191 383 2520 or email

More information is available on the link below or ask any staff member at the surgery.  Leaflets are available in the surgery waiting room and information on our young carters notice board for further details. (this link will open in a new window - popups must be allowed)
