Family Support

We work with young carers and their families.  Young carers are at the centre of the support we provide but we know that young carers are part of a family.   We often work with young carers and their families over a period of time.  It gives us the chance to get to know you and for you to get to know us.  

 

The type of support we offer families depends on the needs of the individual family but might include; someone to talk to, help with accessing support for the person requiring care, help with money problems, help with housing problems, help with benefits or food bank referrals. 

 

​If you would like to find out more about what we do or just have a chat please get in touch with us on 01620 826558.  We are often out and about so if we do not answer the phone please leave a message and we will get back to you as soon as possible.  You can also email us at info@eastlothianyoungcarers.org

 

“Young carers have made a huge difference in my life as the support for my child is amazing.  Young carers always go the extra mile and nothing is ever too much trouble no matter how big or small the problem is.”
