Willow Young Carers Service

Welcome to Willow young carers' website

Welcome to Willow, the links at the bottom will take you to the other pages on our site, which we hope will provide you with useful information about the work we do with young carers.

What is Willow?

Willow is a support service for young carers aged 5-18 years old living in Leeds. We support children and young people who care for a family member affected by a physical or mental health illness, disability or substance misuse problem.

How do I make a referral?

It is important to us that families are involved in the decisions that affect them, so we only accept referrals where the young person and / parent (depending on age of child) has been included in the referral process and given permission to share their information with us.

Families can refer themselves by filling in the form or asking another worker like a teacher or support worker to fill in the form with them and posting it to us at Willow. In some cases we can take referrals from families directly over the phone.
