What is a Young Carer?
‘Young Carers are children and young people who provide care to another family member who has a physical illness or disability; mental ill health; sensory disability or has a problematic use of drugs and alcohol. The level of care they provide would usually be undertaken by an adult and as a result of this they take on a level of responsibility that is inappropriate to their age and development. This has a significant impact on their childhood experiences’
