Information for Professionals

From 1st April 2019 Carers in Hertfordshire has been awarded the contract from Hertfordshire County Council to support all young carers across Hertfordshire.

We will support young carers both at emerging needs (where the caring role is low and the young carer is not negatively impacted) and those with a higher level of need (for example when the caring role is inappropriate or having a negative impact on the young carer).

With the families consent we will be using the Families First EHM System to assess the needs of the whole family, and work with other professionals where necessary.
