Carers Rights Day

A young carer is someone under the age of 18 who helps look after, or whose life is affected by, a relative with a disability, illness, mental health condition, or drug or alcohol problem. If you are a young carer, you will most likely help look after a family member, friend or loved one.

Sibling Care - looking after brothers and sisters. Communication - helping someone communicate with others. Practical tasks - this can be helping with cooking, cleaning and other tasks such as shopping. Physical care - you may help someone move around or get out of bed. Helping someone take their medication - you may also help someone collect their prescriptions. Emotional support - helping or talking to someone who may be feeling distressed or down.
