What does a young carer do?
A young carer may spend time doing any of these things for someone in their family:
taking them to medical appointments or the hospital
helping them to take their medication
helping them to wash themselves, or with personal care
doing the shopping or cooking.
They may do a lot of these things most of the time. Or they may only do one or two of these things occasionally.
They may have other people in their family helping out as well, or they may be doing it all on your own.
