Mayor of Croydon, Cllr Yvette Hopley, met with young carers at new Carers Support Centre.
Young carers from Croydon met the Mayor today as part of her tour of the brand new Carers Support Centre on George Street.
The young carers were attending a workshop held by the Young Carers Project. The project offers support to young people who are caring for a parent or sibling with a physical disability, mental health issue, long-term illness or learning difficulty. The Young Carer’s project is run by Off The Record, a Croydon based agency providing free support to children and young people. The Centre has been purposely designed for carers and offers a range of services to help carers including a drop in service. Find out more here.
