Who is a Young Carer?

Their family member may have a physical or learning disability, blood borne virus, a long-term illness or be affected by mental ill-health or drug/alcohol addiction.

The young person can have direct caring responsibilities or be affected by a caring role either physically or emotionally. Their caring role may also be prohibiting them from accessing the same opportunities as other young people their age.

Often young carers do not wish to be identified as they do not wish to be singled out as different from their peers.
