Young carers exist because someone in their family network requires their support. Caring for a family member or friend can be a positive experience for a young person which can strengthen family relationships and build a young person’s life skills and maturity.
Children of parents who are addicted to drugs or alcohol may experience chaotic lives which lack routine and may often worry about the safety of their parent.
Being a young carer can often have a severe, significant and long-lasting impact on a young person’s health and wellbeing. It is therefore essential that services consider how they will support young carers with regards to their physical and mental health and wellbeing.
