Young Carers and FamiliesLast changed: Wednesday 20 February, 2019

A young carer or parent carer cares for someone in their family who is ill, has a disability or experiences mental health, drug or alcohol issues.

We can help a parent carer looking after a child with disabilities

  • by listening and understanding
  • with information on what support is available and how to access it
  • with benefits applications

We can help a young carer looking after a parent or brother or sister:

  • by offering one-to-one mentoring at difficult times
  • by arranging fun trips and running a young carer youth club
  • by encouraging and supporting them to stay on at school and achieve their potential
