Young Carers

About Young Carers Aged 5-16yrs

DAZU runs the Young Carers Project for Enfield which was established in 1996 and we have a membership of 200 young carers and their families.

The Project was set up with the intention of supporting children who may have additional caring responsibilities within the home. Young carers could be caring for a relative who is disabled, has an illness or mental health problem. We provide a wide range of support to Young Carers, including:

  • Funded Counselling Service
  • Funded Trips to various venues
  • Funded Free access to DAZU’s recreational activities
  • Six-monthly newsletter written by a Young Carer
  • Advocacy
