Barnardo's Action with Young Carers, Liverpool

The service is commissioned by Liverpool city council to support young carers and young adult carers up to 25 who are caring for an adult.


We are a city wide service that ensures young carers and young adult carers in Liverpool are identified and can receive a carer’s assessment under the statutory duty of the Council.


Young carers are children and young people under the age of 18 years who provide care to another family member who has a physical illness/disability including mental ill health, sensory disability or has a problematic use of drugs or alcohol. A Young Adult Carer is someone who is aged 18-25 and provides, or intends to provide, care, assistance or support to an adult on an unpaid basis. A Young Adult Carer may or may not live at the same address as the person that they care for and there may be other adults supporting the person that they care for.


Once assessed and if offered support by the service the range of support available based on need and includes:


1-1       support, someone to talk to who will listen

Support around emotional health & well-being

Group work (focused/targeted)

Participation in service design

Information & advice about illness & disabilities of the cared for person
