A Young Carer is anyone under the age of 18 years who cares for someone. because of an illness, disability or addiction which can include mental health and depression. Some of the ways young people care for someone are:
- Staying in the house a lot to be there for them
- Helping them to get up, get washed or dressed, or helping with toileting
- Doing lots of the household chores like shopping, cleaning and cooking
- Looking after younger brothers and sisters because of their or their parent’s illness or disability
- Providing emotional support, for example encouraging, listening, or just being there for someone
Spending a lot of time caring for someone else can be stressful, and might make learning, socialising or finding a career more difficult. It’s important for you and your future to get the best support as soon as possible.
