Young Carers - Carers Under 16 Years
Young Carers are aged between 8-15 years old and care for a family member of any age, due to disability, mental illness, chronic/terminal illness or problems relating to substance misuse.
Young Adult Carers - Under 25
As part of the Carers Hub we have a Young Adult Carers service (YAC) which is specifically aimed at carers aged between 16 to 25 years.
Adult Carers - Over 25
Carers come from every walk of life. Regardless of age, gender or culture, if you are looking after another person on a regular basis, you are a carer.
