Help get support for young carers

Being a carer is a big responsibility, even more so if you're young. There are more than 150,000 young carers in England and Wales alone, and they are often without support.

We're asking anyone who knows a child or young person who is a carer, to put them in touch with Spurgeons Oxfordshire who provide children with support to help them cope better with their caring responsibilities.
