Coming to young carers has helped me to build friendships and I feel happy here.
Being a Young Carer
If you are a young carer then we believe that you play a special
role in caring for someone else. Young carers provide support
to their family members in many different ways and as a result many
pay a price to their own health, education and social
The Young Carers Project aims to help reduce the stress and
strain of your caring role. By providing emotional and educational
support alongside trips and activities, we want you to be able to
have a full life that includes both being a carer but also enjoying
being a young person.
At Young Carers we also aim to make sure that the role you play
is the right one - often as carers you take on the role of
caring for everything and sometimes that can be too much. You might
be supporting your family member with many aspects of their care
such as medication, diet, appointments, personal and physical
We're here to ensure that you're not taking on too much and to
make sure that you are getting the help you need to carry out these
tasks. We want to make sure that you are coping okay as a
carer because we care about carers...
