Are you a Young Carer?

If you are under 18 and help to look after a relative with a disability, illness, mental health condition or drug or alcohol problem, then you are a young carer.

Young carers are often under more pressure than their peers and can sometimes feel isolated. Have a look at some of the following resources that might be useful.

Devon Young Carers – online resources, group sessions and some one-to-one support for carers aged 4-18yrs.
