For young carers

Young carers are people aged 5 to 25 who care for a family member or friend who has an illness, disability, a mental health issue or an alcohol or other drug issue.

For young carers

Do you have a close family member or friend with an illness, disability, mental illness, an alcohol or other drug issue or who is frail aged? 

Do you help them with any of these tasks:

  • taking them to medical appointments, or the hospital?
  • helping them to take their medication?
  • helping them to wash themselves, or with personal care?
  • doing the shopping or cooking?

You might not think of yourself as a young carer, but if you can say yes to any of these things, we might be able to help.
