Young Adult Carers

 Young Adult Carers

Are you a Young Adult Carer? Are you aged between 16 and 25?

Do you provide regular ongoing care, help or support to someone living in your home? This could include helping with household tasks, looking after a sibling, assisting with personal care or giving emotional support.
This could be due to a long-term illness, disability, physical or mental health issue or someone who misuses substances. Either a parent, grandparent, sibling or another family member.
Being a Young Adult Carer can have a significant impact on a young person’s physical and mental health, education and social opportunities. At Harrow Carers we want to help Young Adult Carers be the best versions of themselves by maximising their opportunities.
