Action for Children

We can’t take away a parent’s illness, but we can give young carers a break. Our services help young people balance caring with being a child

A young carer is someone under 18 who looks after a parent or another family member. They take on physical and emotional duties that adults usually handle. It can feel scary and isolating. Our support helps young carers come to terms with their parent's or other family member’s illness or condition. We teach them how to cope, and guide them to build positive relationships outside the family. We help young carers plan for the future, by making sure they can access adult services when they’re 18.
