Young carers are young people who help care for a family member who is disabled, physically or mentally ill, has a long term serious illness or has a substance misuse problem.
This is a role that many young people are happy and proud to do. However, inappropriate or excessive levels of caring can put their education, training or health at risk, and may prevent them from enjoying their childhood.
A young carer is a child or young person under 18 and a young adult carer is aged 18 - 25.
For more information about young carers and the support available to them, please visit the Coventry City Council Young Carers website.
