Children in Need, in partnership with Barnet Carers Centre

What is the ‘Children in Need’ project?

The project provides support for isolated primary young carers aged 5-17 who are registered with Barnet Carers Centre. It seeks to reduce their isolation and increase their life chances by removing the personal or family related barriers which were stopping them from accessing support services independently.
