Young carers are students who help to look after someone in their family for example a parent, brother, sister or other family member who has a illness, physical or learning disability, a mental health problem or misuse of drugs or alcohol. A young carer may help with practical and/or emotional caring responsibilities that would normally be expected of an adult.
