14year old young carer helping her mum by tucking her in

Young Adult Carers may feel isolated from their peers, feel financially disadvantaged and miss out on age appropriate social activities. They may have missed out on gaining qualifications and struggle with accessing further and higher education, or employment. They may have low self-esteem and find decision-making difficult.
