Young carers (2006)

Young Carer Poster

Young carers are children and young people who help look after a member of the family who is sick, disabled or has mental health problems.

With this campaign we were aiming to make the nation aware of young carers, and have asked the public to give their permission for a young carer to take a break from their responsibilities.

Barnardo’s runs 14 projects throughout the UK that support young carers and keep families together. We provide various children's services that make it possible for a child to just be a child.
