My role as a young carer

Hi, my name is Hannah and I’m a young carer for my mum and my two brothers. My hobbies include sewing and crafts.

My normal day would start with get up, get dressed, help mum pack lunch and help get my little brother dressed and ready for school.

After school I would come home eat then help mum after dinner. I help bath and dress my little brother and help put him to bed.

I then help get mum ready for tomorrow by making sure our uniforms are clean during the day. I put loads of washing on, feed the dog, and clean the house.
