STEP Young Carers

Who are Young Carers?

A young carer is a young person, under the age of 18, who has a caring responsibility. This is usually for a family member, who has a disability, long-term illness, mental illness (including depression, anxieties) or drug/alcohol substance misuse.

When young carers reach the age of 16, they can also access support through our Young Adult Carers projects
