The term Young Adult Carer applies to anyone between 16 and 25 whose life is in some way restricted because of the need to take responsibility for the care of a person on a regular basis.

They may be the main Carer or provide partial care for a Brother, Sister, Mother, Father, Grandparent, Husband, Wife or Partner.

The person being cared for may have a long-term illness, a physical or sensory impairment, learning difficulties, mental illness or be affected by alcohol or substance misuse.

As you move from being a Young Carer to Young Adult Carer, our staff can support you.

Some of our Young Adult Carers who attended our Clubs become Volunteers and using your experience, you can help us to support the Younger Carers.
