Project Description

Kids

Do you help to look after someone in your family?

It might be someone who has a disability or is not well either physically or mentally.

Or maybe they have a drinking or drug problem.

You are a young carer and you are not alone.
There is plenty of support out there for you.
Definition of a young carer:

Young carers are children and young people aged up to the age of 25 who provide care, assistance or support to another family member who is disabled, physically or mentally ill, or has a substance misuse problem. They carry out, often on a regular basis, significant or substantial caring tasks, taking on a level or responsibility that is inappropriate to their age or development.

“I don’t always get to join in activities like everyone else, or have friends over as my dad has bi-polar and when he is unwell I have to stay home and look after him”. Ben, 15
