Young Carers

Support in School

Many  young  people  have  someone  in  their  home  who  is  disabled,  living with a physical or 
mental illness or have difficulty with alcohol or drugs, and they may need extra support and 
additional care from their family.

A  Young  Carer  is  someone  under  the  age  of  18  who  may  be  supporting someone with 
personal care, physical tasks around the home, or provide emotional support to someone they love. 

For more details please see the attached booklet.
