What is a Young Carer?

Do you help or look after someone in your family? Is this because they are ill, disabled, or have problems with drugs or alcohol or their mental health? You might be doing the shopping for them, or the cooking, or housework. Perhaps you help them wash or dress? Or maybe you spend time cheering them up. Whatever it is you do, it means that you can call yourself a “Young Carer” and it also means that we may be able to help you.

How can we help you?

  • We can answer your questions and give you advice on anything you need to know.
  • We can give you useful information, which can help you and your family.
  • We can introduce you to other young people who are in similar situations to you.
  • We can speak out for you, making sure that your feelings and ideas are heard.
  • We run regular groups, where you can take part in exciting and new activities, have a break from home life, and have fun with friends.
