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.
If you would like some help from the Young Carers Project you can fill out this form.
If you are a young person you can fill it out yourself.
If you are someone helping a young person we need their consent and if they are under 13 we need their parent’s consent too.
Please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org if you need help filling out the form and someone will get back to you.
