Young carers, the impact caring may be having on your life

Caring and helping to look after your family member, partner or friend may be having an impact for example on:

  • getting to school on time
  • doing homework on time
  • not being able to spend time with friends or relaxing
  • feeling left out with friends
  • friends don’t understand what it is like for you, caring for your family member

Let an adult such as your teacher know.
