Young carers are children and young people who often take on practical and/or emotional caring responsibilities that would normally be expected of an adult.
Young carers can be referred to the young carers project by the completion of the young carers referral form (available to download below). This can be done by professionals or parents.
Young carers can attend weekly activities as well as half term and summer activities which gives them an opportunity to meet other young people in similar situation and have a break from caring. Holiday activities include trips, swimming, cinema, playzone, adventure playground, games, cooking, bowling, theatre and more!
The Young Carers Team is based at the Battenburg Family Centre, Battenburg Avenue, Portsmouth PO2 0SN. You can contact them by phone on 023 9266 1959 or via e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
