Are you a Young Carer?
Young carers are children and young people aged under 18 who provide care for another family member. This might be because the family member has an illness or disability and therefore needs a some extra help at home.
Caring for someone else is hard. Being a Young Carer can feel very lonely at times as looking after someone takes time. This means finding time for school work, activities and seeing friends is harder. Other people might find it hard to understand this. There are places that can help and you don’t need to do everything by yourself. Talking to people can really help.
