Barnardo's Bradford Young Carers Service is a partnership between Barnardo's, Social Services Department, Bradford Primary Care Trusts and Bradford Children's Fund. The service was established in 1994 and has continued to address the needs of young carers through effective partnerships with a range of agencies.
