Centre 33 provides a range of free and confidential services to young people caring for a family member with an illness, a disability, affected by mental ill-health or drug and alcohol use. We support young carers, aged 8-18, who live in Cambridgeshire.

What is a Young Carer?
Young carers are children and young people under 18 who provide (or intend to provide) care, assistance or support to another family member who is disabled, physically or mentally ill, or has a substance misuse problem. They carry out, often on a regular basis, significant or substantial caring tasks, taking on a level of responsibility that is inappropriate to their age or development.
‘I don’t always have the same opportunities to take part in activities as everyone else or have friends over as my dad has bi polar and when he is unwell I have to stay home to care for him’ Ben, 15
