Sheffield Young Carers (SYC)

Summary
We offer support to children and young people aged 8-25 who live in Sheffield and are young carers. Being a young carer means they provide care for one or more family members who have disabilities, long-term physical illnesses, and/or mental health difficulties. They may be providing physical, personal, financial and/or emotional care. We also offer support to children and young people aged 8-25 who live in Sheffield and are affected by drug and alcohol issues in their family (now or in the past).


Description

Sheffield Young Carers (SYC) is a registered charity which has been running since 1997.

We provide one year of support through one-to-one work, group support, trips, training, and support with education and employment.

We can work with young carers’ families, with the aim of reducing the caring that the young person is taking on and improving life for the whole family.

We also work with organisations across the city to make sure that additional support is available to young carers and young people affected by familial substance misuse.

All staff and volunteers are DBS checked and we accept self, family or professional referrals (NB: the young person MUST consent and be involved in the referral).
