Make A Referral

TEN NE South Tyneside Young Carers Service is commissioned by our local authority, to provide young carers and families with an assessment of needs, should they wish to have one. The assessment process involves a carers conversation with the young carer and family, which helps project staff to identify the type, amount and impact of caring. Once this has been established an appropriate support plan will be developed.

We recognise that the needs of young carers and families are individual to them. Therefore, they play a pivotal role in the development and implementation of support. Staff work closely with the young carers and family during the carers conversation/assessment, to identify key outcomes and areas for support. We then work collaboratively to address these areas and implement appropriate support to achieve positive outcomes.
