There are many children and young people in Hampshire who are young carers. The 2001 Census showed that there are 3,300 young people in Hampshire who are young carers and many may feel alone or isolated and unable to talk to anyone about their situation. Help is available for them and their families.
School Nurses work closely with Education, Social Care and other health professionals and are able to provide information and support. There are projects and support groups within Hampshire to support young carers. To find out about projects in your area please go to the ‘Young Carers Services’ section of the Include Programme website
