|We support young carers in Castle Point and Basildon. Our project was developed in April 1997 to identify and support Young Carers. We are part funded by ECC and works in partnership with social services, schools and local agencies ensuring that Young Carers have the opportunity to meet with their peers and gain valuable support.|
Since we began we have identified an increasing amount of Young Carers and thanks to the support of our team and funders will continue to do so.
