How do you know if you are a young carer?

A young carer is someone aged 18 or under who helps look after a relative who has a condition, such as a disability, illness, mental health condition, or a drug or alcohol problem. Most young carers look after one of their parents or care for a brother or sister.

Who to speak to if you think you are a young carer or need some support?
