Young Carers are young people between 4 and 18 years whose lives are in some way restricted because of the need to take responsibility or care for someone in their family with long-term illness, disability, mental health issues, an alcohol/substance misuse problem or HIV.
Bromley Well brings together a variety of individual support services in a partnership of voluntary organisations from across Bromley’s Third Sector, comprising Age UK Bromley and Greenwich, Bromley and Lewisham Mind, Bromley Citizens Advice Bureau, Bromley Mencap and Community Links Bromley.
All of these caring services focus on the needs of different service user groups in Bromley and, through support and self-management, ensure that individuals are able to remain independent in the community for as long as possible. The services include support services for:
- adult carers;
- young carers
- older frail residents;
- those with long term conditions;
- people with learning disabilities;
- people with physical disabilities; and
- mental health support services.
