'Lambeth Young Carers has made me feel more confident with other people and I have made new friends.'
Am I a young carer?
A young carer is anyone aged 5 to 21 who helps look after a family member or friend, who has an illness or condition. This might be a physical illness; mental illness; learning disability; or some form of addiction.
A young carer might ‘care’ in all sorts of ways, be it through personal care, help around the home, or by providing emotional support.
No matter how big or small the caring role, we’re here to help.
