Young Carers Project (West Berkshire) – Young carers are children and young people under 18 who take on caring tasks and responsibilities within their family that most of us only do as adults. The person you care for could be a parent, grandparent, a brother, sister or a family friend. The person you look after may have a physical disability, a progressive disease, a mental health difficulty or a substance misuse problem.
It can be rewarding to care and help your family cope but you should still be able to relax and have some fun, which is what West Berkshire’s Young Carers Project is all about.
