A new DVD featuring young carers talking frankly about their experiences has been launched. They talk about their everyday life caring for relatives, about the things they find most difficult and how teachers and health professionals can make a difference. Young carers are children and young people
They often look after someone in their family who has a disability, a long-term illness, or is affected by mental ill health. Young carers may look after parents, or other relative. The average age of a young carer is 12 and many take on responsibilities normally only expected of an adult.
