Young Carers

What is a Young Carer?

Young Carers are children or young people under the age of 18 who help to care for a family member. This person may have a long term illness, a physical or sensory impairment, mental health problems or a drug or alcohol addiction. The family member may be a parent, sibling or grandparent living with them.
