Support for young carers
Am I a young carer?
If you are under 18 and look after a family member, usually a parent or brother or sister, who has a disability, a serious illness, mental ill health or who has issues with substance misuse, then you are a young carer.
You might provide care inf the form of basic household tasks, nursing care, or emotional support.
