A young carer is a child or young person under the age of 18 who provides care to another family member who has a physical illness, disability, mental health issues, a sensory disability or a problematic use of alcohol/drugs.

The care can be practical, physical and emotional support. As a result of this, it can have a significant impact on their childhood.
