Meet the team

Get to know the team who support you as a young carer!

Hi, we’re the Young Carers team at Carers in Hertfordshire. We’re here to make sure young carers like you know that you are not alone.

Some of the team’s job is to come and visit you at home to find out what is important to you and how we might be able to help you. You’ll see some of us at the activities and events that we run through the school holidays. We are all out and about quite a lot, and love chatting to young carers.

Here’s the team:

Emma-Lea, Jenna, Katie, Sarah and Ellen

“We are all Young Carers Coordinators. We’ll come and chat to you at home to find out how things are for you and how we might be able to help. You will also see us at lots of the activities for Young Carers!”


Emma – Lea









“I’m the Young Carers Manager. I manage the service and the team, but have worked in other jobs in the team before. You’ll still see me at events during the holidays, otherwise I’d miss seeing you all!”


Picture of Laura - Project Worker“I work on different projects in the team so my job is quite varied! At the moment I help to produce the Young Carers newsletter, and I am also offering play therapy to some young carers.”


Picture of Jane - Administrator“I’m one of the Young Carers Administrators. I help with events, so you’re likely to talk to me on the phone about activity bookings.”



“…and I’m the other Young Carers Administrator who helps keep the team running! I send out a lot of the letters, but you might speak to me on the phone if you call the office.”
