Re: Infobus on June 7th - Young Carers

Same here @Daniel-Carers. I didn't realise I was a young carer until I was much older. This is very common for young carers not to identify as a young carer. 

Re: Infobus on June 7th - Young Carers

What is a young carer?

A young person taking care of somebody else that has a disability and can't take care of themselves.

Re: Infobus on June 7th - Young Carers

A young carer to me is someone aged up to 25 who provides unpaid care for a family member or friend that has a disability, illness, mental health, alcohol or drug or are frail. They may not provide constant care or are the primary carer, but they provide some level of assistance for the person they care for.

Thats a good point, everybodies caring situation is different. You might care for a parent, grandparent,sibling or friend. In some cases it might even be more than one person.
