Young Carers

Young carers are children and young people who look after someone in their family who has a disability, a long term illness, or is affected by mental ill health or substance misuse.

Young carers may look after parents, care for a brother or sister, or other relative. The average age of a young carer is 12 and they take on responsibilities normally only expected of an adult.

We are doing everything we can to support young carers in Bristol and South Gloucestershire, but we can’t do it on our own. Find out how you can support us.
