Frequently Asked Questions

Yes. Our staff will tailor the support that can be offered around individual circumstances, i.e. the extent of the caring role, regardless of what condition the cared for has.

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

Our Young Carers service is from ages 8-16 and our Young Adult Carers service from ages 16-25. After aged 25, the carer will transition into our Adult Carers service.

Identifying young carers can be challenging, see How to identify a young carer for more information.
