We recognise the important role parents and carers play in their child’s recovery and understand that they will on occasion need support for themselves.
We also understand that you may be a young carer. You are classed as a young carer if you are under 18 and help to look after a relative with a disability, illness, mental health condition, or drug or alcohol problem. You may do extra jobs in and around the home, help out with other siblings or give emotional support to others.
We can advise you on how to access help and support in your caring role. Please speak to your worker or visit our Carers resources website page for more information.
Patient and Carer Involvement
We believe it is very important you, your carers and families have opportunity to design and improve our services. The Patient and Carer Involvement Service provides support to people who want to be involved in developing our services. This team provides a range of projects and activities that people can take part in. If you are interested in finding out more, please visit the Patient and Carer Involvement website pages
