Frequently Asked Questions

We will consider each referral if the young person is impacted by the circumstances and they have a caring responsibility.

Once registered with Carers Bucks, carers will progress through our services as long as they have a caring role.

Our Young Carers service is for those aged 5 – 16 years and our Young Adult Carers service is for those aged 16 – 25 years. After the age of 25, the carer will transition into our Adult Carers service.

Identifying young carers can be challenging, see How to identify a young carer. Alternatively, please give us a call on 0300 777 2722 and we can discuss the young person you are supporting.

If you have a question that is not answered in the above, please contact us on 0300 777 2722 or email us.
