Young Carers

Who is a Young Carer?

A Young Carer is somebody under 18 who helps to care for a family member who may have an illness, disability or addiction.

“As a Young Carer you often have many worries which can limit concentration. Young Carers should have someone within school to talk to about their caring roles with confidence and trust.”

Am I a Young Carer?

If you’re under 18 and looking after someone in your family, we’ll help you work out if you belong to a group of people called Young Carers

“It’s difficult to talk to teachers. It’s not always easy to explain…It’s always in the corridor or class. I just don’t tell them.”
