Carers

Are you a young carer?

If you do one or more of the following you may be a young carer:

  • Help a family member who is sick, has a disability, a mental illness or has
    problems with drugs or alcohol
  • Help look after your brothers or sisters
  • Cannot always do what your friends do because you help someone
  • Have to do extra chores to help out around the house because no one else can do
  • them
  • Find that helping at home is sometimes more important than homework or school
  • Are really tired all the time because of all the help you have to give
  • Worry about the person you help when you are not there
