Carers

What is a young carer?

  • A young Carer is someone aged 18 or under who helps to look after a relative who has a disability, illness, mental health condition, or drug or alcohol problem.
  • Someone who does jobs around the home such as cooking, cleaning or helping someone get dressed or move around.
  • Someone who helps someone deal with their feelings

The difference between a young Carer and other young people is that a young Carer is responsible for the care of a member of their family in a way other young people are not.
