Abstract: Sheffield Young Carers Project (SYCP) was established in November 1996 when a co-ordinator was appointed for a three year period. This followed a successful joint finance bid by a multi-agency steering group which had been meeting for approximately a year. Joint finance funding was awarded for a three year period, and additional funding from the National Lotteries Charities Board (NLCB) has enabled the Project to employ additional staff. Currently the Project has one full-time co-ordinator, who is employed by and managed by the Education Department of the local authority. Two project workers and an administrator were employed in September 1997 for a three year period, funded by the NLCB grant. One of the project workers is employed to work specifically with young carers from black communities. They are employed directly by the Project and line managed by the coordinator. In addition a careers adviser works at the Project two days a week (increased from one day a week from September 1998). A sessional worker has been employed from August 1998 for one year, and a researcher is researching young carers’ issues for two days a week over a period of three months. The Project has a management committee drawn from a range of local statutory and voluntary organisations.
