The 2001 census found 175,000 young carers in the UK. Approximately 3300 of these young carers live in Hampshire.
Hampshire County Council Children’s Services Department has commissioned The Children’s Society to undertake development work for Young Carers and their families throughout the county. This project can provide information leaflets, education and training packs, and helps link together professionals who are interested in raising awareness of the needs of young carers and their families.
For more information about resources and events, or to be added to their mailing list, please contact the Hampshire Development team at YCI.
