Referral/ Assessment

All Young Carers are provided with a Young Carers Assessment , to determine their caring responsibilities and the impact of caring. This Young Carers Assessment is conducted by Humankind South Tyneside Young Carers as they are commissioned to do so by the Local Authority.

TEN and Humankind South Tyneside Young Carers services support young people and their families to reduce the impact of caring and ensure that young people have access to the same opportunities as their peers and can achieve their full potential.
