From the 01/04/2019 Change Grow Live will no longer be providing this service. The website for the new provider is: Sheffield Young Carers

What About Me is a free and confidential service for young people aged 8 - 18 who are affected by someone else’s drug or alcohol use in Sheffield.

We are a team of specialist workers who won’t judge or tell you what to do, we are here to listen and support you. We are an outreach service, and we are more than happy to visit you wherever it is most convenient for you. We can meet you at your home, in school/college, at a local library or anywhere else that you feel comfortable.

How to contact us

We always welcome new clients, so please get in touch if you are interested in getting help from the service or you’d just like to ask some questions. Feel free to bring someone with you on your first visit.

We provide:

  • Free and confidential support for young people affected by the hidden harm of parental/carer/significant other substance misuse.
