Making a referral to us

Our charity, Carers Support Centre, provides support to young carers aged 8 to 18, in Bristol and South Gloucestershire. We use a family centred approach to provide information, advice and support to young carers, their families and professionals. We work in partnership with other agencies to provide activities for young carers and to increase wider community support networks.

If you think that a child you are working with would benefit from our services, please read our Eligibility Criteria before making a referral. Please note demands for our service far exceed our capacity, and we operate a waiting list.

We understand the complicated dynamics of some families, so please feel free to contact us if you are unsure whether or not a referral is appropriate.

Referrals can be made online using the form below, by professionals or families of a child or young person who has caring responsibilities. Information given will be held securely by Bristol & South Gloucestershire Young Carers. An assessment of need will be completed for referrals meeting our criteria, but we cannot guarantee that a service will be offered in all cases.

Please complete this form as fully as possible. If you have any difficulties completing the form online, a the referral form is also available to download below.
