Young Carers

If you are under 18 and look after someone who is ill, disabled or uses drugs or alcohol, then you are a young carer.

Remember you are not alone – Carers in Hertfordshire is here to support you.

A young carer is someone under the age of 18 who does things that would normally be done by an adult. Often, this means you do jobs to help a family member meet their daily needs. The person you support might have a physical disability, long term illness or mental illness or ill-health. They could misuse drugs or alcohol.

You might do tasks such as cooking meals, going shopping or making sure someone takes their medicine. Or you may give someone emotional support.
