Are you a Young Carer?

Young Carers are children and young people who care for someone in their own home who is ill, has a physical or mental disability, or drug or alcohol problems.

For more information go to Young Carers Bucks who can provide support for young carers age 6-18 in Buckinghamshire:

As well as offering support & information, they have trips & activities and Young Carers Clubs. They can also help you to find other services who may be able to help you too.
