A Guide to Young Carers' in Aberdeen
A Young Carer / Young Adult Carer is a child, young person or young adult who has a significant role in looking after someone in their family.
They may care for someone who is disabled, has long term illness, mental health problem(s) or is affected by alcohol or drug misuse.
They may have practical caring responsibilities or be emotionally affected by a family member’s care needs.
Their caring role may also be prohibiting them from accessing the same opportunities as other children their age.
If this is someone you know or if this is you VSA Young Carers’ Service can help.
