Who is a Young Carer?


’The term young carer should be taken to include children and young people under 18 who provide ongoing care and emotional support to a family member who is physically or mentally ill, disabled or misuses substances… a young carer becomes vulnerable when the level of care-giving and responsibility to the person in need of care becomes excessive or inappropriate for that child, risking impacting on his or her emotional or physical well-being or educational achievement and life chances’
(Children’s Society, Hidden from View, 2013).
