What is a Young Carer?

A young carer is someone who helps look after their mum, dad, brother, sister or someone else in their family that needs extra help. They may need support due to old age, illness, disability, mental health problems or an addiction. Looking after someone is a pretty amazing thing to do, but it can also be a lot to take on.
