Many children and young people either don’t know or don’t realise that they are young carers. This means they may miss out on guidance and support that could make the world of difference to them.
If you think you might be a young carer there are lots of people who you can talk to; family, friends, a support worker, a school teacher or the person you care for. There are also organisations like ourselves that can support you and it is so simple to make a referral to young carers services to ensure you receive the support that you deserve to continue living your life and reaching your potential alongside your caring role.
There are some fabulous videos in the Recommended Resources section to help you to understand your caring role and to realise that you are not alone.
