Young Carers

Support for young carers

If you are a young carer aged under 25, the Student Welfare Service can help you make the most of your time at University.

Support can include:

  • Finding out if you are receiving the maximum support available from Student Finance England and from University Scholarships
  • Checking your possible entitlement to state benefits
  • Young Carers Allowance exploring your entitlement to extra travel costs and support

You can discuss your situation, confidentially, with an adviser through a face to face appointment, by email or telephone. Please contact us on the details located to the right of this page.
