Being a young carer isn’t easy but there is support for you. If you answer yes to one or more of the following questions you may be a young carer:

  • Do you have a parent or brother/sister with a physical/learning disability, mental health condition or a long term illness?
  • Do you help a family member with every day household chores?
  • Does the support you offer stop you from having time to your self?
  • Does your caring impact on your school attendance and achievement?
  • Do you often worry about the person who is unwell?

You can  go to: to complete a short young carers assessment which will be submitted directly to a member of the team.

Alternatively, you can contact AYC yourself or ask an adult to contact us by calling 0115 9629351 or texting 07814 678460.
