Who are Young Carers?
Young Carers are children and young people who help care for and support a family member who either has a physical disability, learning disability, experiencing mental ill health, issues with substance misuse or another long term health condition. Most often young carers help to care for a parent, a brother or sister or another loved one who lives with them.

Our Objectives
Connecting Young Carers work to ensure that young carers have the same opportunities as other young people, are not placed in inappropriate caring roles and are able to fulfil their potential.

"Ensuring Young Carers are Seen, Heard & Supported"
