YOUNG CARERS

Am I a Young Carer?

A Young Carer is someone aged 18 or under who helps look after a relative with a disability, illness, mental health condition, or drug or alcohol problem. If you’re a Young Carer, you probably look after a family member or friend of the family.

If you’re not sure if you are a young carer you can give us a call and chat through your situation.

At Devon Young Carers we work with young people aged 4-18 who help look after someone in their family, or a friend, who is ill, disabled or misuses drugs and alcohol. We work to make sure that young carers are supported through our service and others, which can include specialist advice, access to respite opportunities and 1:1 support.
