Anyone under 18 in a substantial and regular caring role can be referred.

The service is free, although contributions are sometimes asked for, to help with the cost of a trip or activity.

These groups are accessible for any young carer in Somerset, you do not need to be formally assessed as a ‘young carer’ to attend, but we do require signed parent/carer consent so Somerset Council can share relevant information with other professionals as appropriate.
