Young Carers are children and young people under 18 who provide or intend to provide care for a sick or disabled parent, adult or sibling.

Young carers carry out significant caring and household tasks which can lead to limited opportunities, education problems, health and emotional difficulties.

As a young carer you are entitled to an assessment regardless of the amount of care provided to identify if you have needs for support or likely to have in the future.

Am I a Young Carer?

We have produced a Young Carers guide called “Do You Care”?

Where can I find help, support and advice?

Young carers can ask for an assessment to find out the best way to help you.
