Support for young carers
If you are under 18 and help care for someone due to a long term illness or disability there is support available to help you.
Carers Trust Tyne and Wear Crossroads Carer Services have young carer support workers who offer information, advice and practical support. They also offer places where young carers can meet and get involved in activities.

Contact Adult Social Care
There are many ways to contact the adult social care team, both online and over the phone.
We encourage people who can contact us online to do so, as it helps to free up phone lines for emergencies or for those who don't have access to or the skills to use computers.
