Who is a Young Carer?
A young carer is a young person under the age of 18 whose life is affected by the care needs of another person, who may have any disability or long-term illness.
This could be anybody with a physical or learning disability, mental health problem, long term chronic health condition, someone who misuses drugs or alcohol, or is elderly and frail.
Young carers provide, or help to provide, a level of care and support to that person and take on a level of responsibility usually associated with an adult. The person they care for is usually someone they live with and could be a parent, sibling, grandparent or other relative.
If you think your child is a Young Carer please contact email firstname.lastname@example.org FAO of Ms Nikki Palethorpe.
