Young carers are children who take on responsibilities in caring for parents, siblings or others, who could have a disability, mental ill health, drug or alcohol dependency or a range of other issues. These responsibilities may be inappropriate for a child, and can affect their ability to enjoy their childhood and grow up with the same opportunities as their peers.
