Parent Carers

Parents or other family members caring for a child or young person with additional needs can access information, advice and support from Carers Leeds.

Our service supports the emotional and physical health of parent carers across Leeds, so that they can continue to care for their children. We do this through one-to-one sessions or group work where we offer carers:

  • Emotional support
  • Advice and information
  • Signposting to services specific to your child’s needs
  • Support managing stress and anxiety

We now offer support groups online. Visit our events page for the latest dates. Parent carers are welcome at any of our other generic support groups.

Max Cards

The Max Card is a discount card for families of children with additional needs and foster families. Families simply show their Max Card upon entry to a venue in order to obtain free or discounted admission.

Carers Leeds are able to offer a card to parent carers we are working with. To get one, please call the advice line 0113 380 4300 to speak to a carer support worker. When you have spoken to us, you can then use the button below to give a £3 donation online to cover the cost of the card.

Please note that a Max Card will only be sent if you have been referred to make a donation via our advice line.
