Lonely. Exhausted. Burnt-out. Worried. Stressed.

This is what young carers and young adult carers told us they feel. While no child or young person should feel like this, for young carers and young adult carers it’s more complex. They are a group of children and young people who are having to put others first, often at the expense of their own education, work, mental health and wellbeing.
