Young carers

Young carers are children and young people who take responsibility for the care of a family member, usually a parent or brother or sister, who have a disability, a serious illness, mental ill health or who have issues with substance misuse.

The care might range from basic household tasks to nursing care, or it might take the form of emotional support.
