What is a Young Carer?

A young carer is a person under the age of 18 who is looking after a family member with a long term illness, disability, mental health or substance misuse issue.

Keeping Family Company

Could you imagine a young person undertaking some of these tasks on a daily basis? This is the reality for Young Carers.

 

The support we offer is tailored to the individual needs of each Young Carer but also involves a whole family approach.
