Hartlepool Young Carers provide support to carers aged from just five years old. Many young carers are providing around the clock support to loved ones. Our goal is to ensure all children have the opportunity for a break from their caring role. Overnight breaks promote positive mental/physical health and support young people to fulfil their aspirations. Young carers are exhausted as they do not get regular breaks away to recoup and lack opportunities to engage in social opportunities. It is our ambition to employ a worker to focus on early identification, ensuring children receive support from our whole community.
