Caerphilly & Newport Young Carers

by Colin Dexter

Barnardo’s Caerphilly & Newport Young Carers Service offices are based in Risca and Newport. We deal with young carers between age 7 and 25 years in the Caerphilly and Newport Boroughs.

Our aims are:

  • to provide you with a break from your caring role
  • to support you when you feel frustrated and angry
  • to get you the right help so that you are able to get some time to yourself
  • to help you access the information you need to be a young carer
  • to work with other people so that you are able to continue your education.

Do you help your parents to do the shopping, washing, ironing? Do you look help to look after your brother or sister? Do any of your parents suffer from mental health problems? Do your parents misuse drugs or alcohol? Do you struggle with your school/college because of your caring responsibilities? Do you have any health problems yourself?

Monday to Friday, 9am – 5pm, we are at
