Young carers are children and young people under 18 who often take on the practical and/or emotional caring responsibilities that would normally be expected of an adult. Young carers may have to prepare meals, look after money matters, give medicine, translate, arrange appointments or take care of a relative’s hygiene. Also caring for someone often means giving them emotional support. It can be a lot of work for anyone to handle, especially when you have school or work at the same time.
