Young and adult carers are being asked to come forward and give feedback on their situation and the support they need. If you would like to give us your thoughts or would like to know more about the support available to young carers and their families go to www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/adult-care/carers. There’s no need to struggle on your own, we can support you. The Lincolnshire Carers Service supports young adult carers aged 16-24 – email [email protected].
In Lincolnshire, we want to ensure every carer is recognised, valued, and supported to have good health and wellbeing and achieve their full potential. Almost 1500 young people under the age of 19 who have a caring role within the family home are supported by the county council. However, it is estimated there are many more young people who do not identify themselves as carers and are missing out on support.
