Young Carers

Welcome to our pages for young carers and young adult carers. We think you are all superheroes, as you take on a lot of responsibility, at such a young age. But even superheroes need looking after!

We are here to get you help to carry out your caring role. 

Check out the page for your age group to find out what support is out there for you.

We hope you feel proud of yourself and all that you do. We have a section about the amazing skills you have picked up in your caring role, which will help you as you grow older.

Please note our services for young carers are mainly for those who live in Bedford Borough.

If you live in Central Bedfordshire

  • Contact Central Bedfordshire Council which run the service for young carers.
  • Young carers in Central Bedfordshire can still apply for a Carers Grant and ID card from us.
  • Young adult carers can access our support in Central Bedfordshire, once they turn 18.

Listen to the podcast series made by our young carers about the feelings and emotions they go through called Welcome to My World.
