Survey results

Our survey found that many young carers and young adult carers have experienced a real intensification in their caring role recently, both in terms of the time they are spending on caring and the number of people they care for.

The survey also found the cost of living crisis has had an alarming impact on young carers with some saying they were having to use savings to help with everyday household expenses.

All of this, of course, is having a detrimental effect on young carers’ mental health and wellbeing.
