A young carer is classified as anyone who is performing a caring role and is aged between five and nineteen. If you are a young person and you are caring for an adult then you are entitled to a carer’s assessment from Luton Borough Council who have a range of services and support options available to you.

With such a wide spread of ages it is clear that there is a need for lots of different age appropriate Support Services in Luton include access to activities, days out and the opportunity to socialise with other young people. There are support groups where young people can discuss caring and get good quality advice.
