Young Carers

Do you know a young carer or sibling carer?

Caring for a family member isn’t always ‘doing something’ to help. The impact of caring for someone can often lead to young people feeling angry, or they may worry about the person or what is happening at home.

Young carers
A young person, who is caring for or emotionally affected by a family member who has a physical or mental illness, disability or misuses drugs or alcohol.

Sibling carers
A young person who is affected by a brother or sister’s disability, illness or additional need.
