Young carers are more likely to understand and respond to information that is targeted to them and reflects the communication channels they are use.
Whilst young carers will have many shared experiences, each young person’s caring role and its impact on them will be unique. Some services respond to this by providing particular support focused on groups or individual young carers.
Not enough carers are likely to be receiving the support they need or are entitled to. One of the main obstacles to carers getting the right support is identification – both self-identification and identification by health professionals.
