We support Young Carers by promoting positive wellbeing through a variety of activities, workshops, and respite. Working with school staff and other professionals, we aim to ensure Young Carers have access to the support they need and know they are not alone.

Young Carers provide unpaid care for a family member or friend with an illness, disability, mental health issue, or addiction. They support the cared-for and other family members with practical tasks, physical care, and emotional support, whilst at the same time trying to live their own life.

We support Young Carers in Havering to minimise the negative impacts of caring and to access social and educational opportunities and emotional support, highlighting the positive impacts of being a carer, such as increased resilience and empathy.

Havering Young Carers delivers a support service to anyone aged 5-18 living in Havering who is taking on caring responsibilities for a family with a long-term illness, disability, mental health or substance misuse issue.


Havering Young Carers works with schools, communities, and statutory and voluntary agencies to identify hidden young carers. Following assessment, Imago Young Carers offer a range of short-term interventions including signposting, one-to-one support, in school support and workshops.
