You might want to think about other people that you're in touch with who you can talk to about being a young carer, like;

  • School nurse (for more information about school nurses click here)
  • Someone in school you trust or get on well with
  • Family Doctor
  • Your Social Worker if you have one
  • Someone else in your family or a friend that you can talk to and trust

We also recommend these two sites as appropriate social media platforms for Young Carers:


Under 18 young carers community. Offers information and support. Includes advice for coping with feelings and links to organisations that may be helpful.


Matter is, at heart, a social community for young adult carers 16-25 years old.
