Welcome to The Carers Trust Heart of England Young Carers Project.

Young carers are people aged between 5 and 18 years old who have a responsibility for looking after or helping someone else to look after a person who has a disability, a long term illness, mental health illness, or someone addicted to drugs or alcohol. That person could be your mum, dad, brother, sister, grandparent or even a close friend.


As a young carer you may help out by going shopping, cooking, cleaning, making sure the person you care for takes their medicine, talking and listening to them when they are not very happy, look after your brothers and sisters or anything else that helps out at home.

We can help you  by listening to you when you want to talk, giving you information and advice, arrange trips and activities to give you a break from your caring responsibilities and support you through any troubles you may have in school (if the problems are because you are caring for someone)


We offer young carers the opportunity to offload their problems and develop the life skills required to deal with any issues young carers may be facing. This can be in school (with their permission) home or at the Den.




We run  regular activities including monthly youth clubs for young carers within the age ranges of 5-7, 8-12, and 13-18 years old.  We also run lots of other activities at the den such as cooking, music and arts and craft sessions.



We work with schools in Coventry to help them to make the lives of young carers easier. 

We offer support in developing policies, training staff on issues affecting young carers, and provide free one to one emotional support to young carers too. 



We provide support to Carers aged between 14-25 years old around managing their caring role, education and or employment. We also provide social opportunities, support groups  and training sessions
