Do you help care for someone?

A young carer is a person who helps to look after someone in the family at home because they are disabled, have been ill for a long time, have a mental health problem or a problem with alcohol or drugs.

A young carer may spend time doing things like cooking, cleaning and shopping.

They may also give medicines and tablets to the person they look after or help them to wash or get dressed and take them to school. Some young carers may not do any of these things but they may worry about the person with the illness or disability.

Because of doing these things, young carers can sometimes feel tired and not always be able to concentrate on their school work or homework, or they can be worried or feel stressed.
