Support for young carers in Wiltshire

From 1 April 2018, assessment of carers aged under 18 will be led and coordinated by Wiltshire Council children's services. Breaks and activities will now be available through Carer Support Wiltshire where appropriate. Activities are designed to give young carers:

  • A break
  • A chance to have fun and meet other young carers
  • A chance to learn new skills

Young people who were previously supported by Spurgeons Young Carers Wiltshire should have been contacted with details of the new arrangements for support.

Further information about assessment and support for young carers can be found on Wiltshire Council’s [website].

The Carer Support Wiltshire website also has a [young carers page].
