Young Carers

Lots of young people are carers without realising it – often for a family member such as a brother or sister, parent or an older relative. Sometimes it can be for a partner or friend who is ill, frail, has a disability, has a mental health concern or has a drug (or alcohol) addiction.

Needs assessments are for adults (18 years of age or over) who may need help because of a disability, ill health or old age. Anyone who appears to have a need for care or support can have a needs assessment, regardless of the ‘level’ of those needs or the person’s financial resources.
