Young Adult Carers (18-25yrs)


Carers in Bedfordshire believe in the positive benefit of you meeting as many others and sharing common experiences

A young adult carer is someone aged 18-25yrs who is caring for someone who has a disability, illness, mental health condition, learning difficulties, sensory impairment, HIV/AIDS or substance misuse. Did you know there are an estimated 700,000 young carers in the United Kingdom?

As a young adult carer you may experience isolation, difficulties managing at home, problems at college or work, lack of social experiences and often need information and advice on the illness or disabilities your parent or grandparents suffer from.

What do we do?

Carers in Bedfordshire's Young Adult Carers Team run the following:

  • Hubs
  • Emotional and Practical Support
  • Information and Advice 
  • Training
  • Help to develop strategies for dealing with difficulties and improving health and well-being
  • Carers Breaks and grants
  • Family time at our Carers Cafes
  • Dedicated Facebook pages


Our Hubs are for Young Adult Carers aged 18-25yrs to get together socially, join in with fun and focused activities, play pool or table football, games consoles or just chill out. For more information contact the Young carer team
